According to the IPO, Godson Zhongke Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Godson Zhongke”) has signed a listing guidance agreement with CITIC Securities, and recently filed with the Beijing Securities Regulatory Bureau, planning to be listed on the Science and Technology Innovation Board.
“Godson” is the earliest high-performance general-purpose processor series developed in my country. It was developed at the Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2001. In 2010, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Beijing Municipal Government jointly took the lead in funding, and Loongson Zhongke was formally established and started market-oriented operations, aiming to industrialize the research and development results of Loongson processors.
The Tianyancha App shows that at present, Loongson Zhongke has completed six rounds of financing. The earliest was in April 2010 when it obtained the Pre-A round of financing, and the investor was Beijing Industrial Investment; Fang is China Overseas Investment. In September 2015, Godson Zhongke completed the B round of financing invested by CDH Baifu, and then completed three equity financings in June and December 2019, as well as in March this year. The investors are Linzhi Dingfu and CDH. Investment and Guoxin Science and Technology Innovation Fund.
Loongson Zhongke is committed to the design, production, sales and service of Loongson series CPUs. The main products include “Godson No. 1” small CPU for industrial applications, “Godson No. 2” medium CPU for industrial control and terminal applications, and “Godson No. 3” large CPU for desktop and server applications. At present, Loongson has carried out extensive market cooperation with partners in the fields of network security, office and informatization, industrial control and Internet of Things, and has been widely used in government, energy, finance, transportation, education and other industries.
Loongson Zhongke takes innovation and development as the theme, industrial development as the main line, system construction as the goal, adheres to independent innovation, masters the core technology of computer software and hardware, provides independent, safe and reliable processors for the needs of national security strategies, and provides information for information The innovative development of industry and industrial informatization provides high-performance, low-cost, and low-power processors.
Tianyancha App shows that Loongson Zhongke currently has 10 major shareholders, of which Beijing Zhongke Suanyuan Asset Management Co., Ltd. and Beijing Tiantong Xinyuan Technology Co., Ltd. directly hold 21.52% of the shares respectively. The former is wholly owned by the Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Hold; and Hu Weiwu, president of Loongson Zhongke, holds a total of 10.6% of the shares through the latter penetration.
Hu Weiwu graduated from the Graduate School of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, majoring in computer system architecture. He is the chief designer of the “Godson” processor, the winner of the National May 4th Youth Medal and the Outstanding Achievement Award of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
According to media reports, on October 23 this year, Hu Weiwu said at the “315th China Engineering Science and Technology Forum – High-end Forum on the Development of Frontier Technology of Intelligent Transportation Equipment” jointly sponsored by the Chinese Academy of Engineering and CRRC, “Godson has completed the development of advanced technologies through 20 years of accumulation. The CPU performance has been supplemented, and the general processing performance of the CPU has reached the level of AMD.
Hu Weiwu believes that at present, the two major bottlenecks in my country’s chip industry are the command system architecture and the production process. The ongoing autonomous replacement is system replacement, not product replacement, and the industrial model should be the Silicon Valley model, not the Zhongguancun model. . Godson’s 20-year development has been making up lessons and looking for gaps, and now it shows a momentum of accelerated development.
However, Hu Weiwu soberly pointed out that the development of core technologies should not be under the illusion of “overtaking on curves”. The capacity building of highly complex systems such as chips needs to take 30 years as a cycle. It is necessary to roll up your sleeves and work hard, and you must be patient and persistent. The goal is to achieve autonomy under market conditions.
