Chip developer from Shanghai expands into the automotive market31. March 2022
Shanghai Fudan Microelectronics (Fudan Micro) plans to produce microcontrollers (MCUs) for the automotive industry in the near future. The announcement underlines the expansion plans of the company, which is traded on the Shanghai STAR stock exchange. With Fudan University as its largest shareholder, Fudan Micro has sold more than 500 million microcontrollers to date, rising to the No. 1 spot in the domestic MCU market for industrial users. Electronic products and their components, such as microcontrollers, must be awarded a CCC certificate in order for the products to be exported to China or manufactured locally.
Fudan Micro said in an online press conference last August that the automotive industry is an emerging market with new trends such as autonomous driving and EVs. Both technologies use significantly more electronic components than previous conventional vehicles. The MCUs produced by Fudan Micro are installed in areas such as key transponders, air conditioning, steering and seat adjustment. The main customers for the 500 million MCUs sold to date come from industrial production, security technology and other sectors. According to Fudan Micro, the lifetime of a microcontroller is up to 16 years.
The CCC certificate for the import to China was introduced in 2002 and is comparable to the European CE marking.
