Peking University and Spreadtrum Communications held a ceremony to unveil the new Peking University Spreadtrum Joint Laboratory.
Representatives from the Shanghai Integrated Circuit Industry Association, Pudong Science and Technology Commission, and Shanghai Zhangjiang Company attended the unveiling ceremony held at Peking University's Shanghai Research Institute of Microelectronics, located at the Zhangjiang Technology Park, in Shanghai.
Dr. Yuhua Cheng, a dean and professor at SHRIME, presided over this ceremony. Dr. Ping Wu, CEO of Spreadtrum, and Dr. Yangyuan Wang, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and a professor at Peking University, each delivered a speech during the ceremony.
Dr. Wu said that the establishment of PKU-Spreadtrum Joint Laboratory should strengthen the cooperation between Spreadtrum and PKU in the commercialization of PKU's education and research. As one of China's leading wireless baseband chipset providers, Spreadtrum's advantages in technology, funds and industrialization would be greatly enhanced by this cooperation, given PKU's strengths in scientific research, talent resources, and accumulated information base. Setting up the Joint Laboratory would push the development of IC design technology and cultivate more senior talents for China's IC industry.
