New Chips to Promote Cooperation between ICT and ST

The Institute of Computing Technology (ICT), CAS and ST, one of the world¡¯s largest semi-conductor manufacturers from France, declared in Beijing on Mar. 28 that they would cooperate to commercialize the IP chips of the Longxin 2E. The Longxin CPU is one of the milestone achievements of the home-grown innovation in China.

Pursuant to the CTIBO between China and France, ICT started cooperation with the ST since 2004. In the cooperative project, ITC takes charge of the architecture and the design of the chip, while ST provides manufacturing technique, production and sales, etc. ICT and ST will co-promote the chip product in the Chinese market. Pursuant to the License Agreement signed between the two sides, ICT authorizes ST to manufacture and sell the relevant chips globally for a period of 5 years. The cooperative project combines ICT¡¯s outstanding capacity of designing advanced CPU with ST¡¯s cutting edge manufacturing technique and its world leading manufacturing facilities. Gian Luca Bertino, Vice President of ST and General Manager of its Peripheral Products Department, said that with very high performance and very low power consumption, the Longxin series CPUs are suitable for all kinds of applications.

Visiting Professor Dr. Martin Atkins Granted Chinese Award

On Feb. 27, the winning candidates and projects of National S&T Awards for 2006 were declared at the Awarding Ceremony of National S&T Awards for 2006. Two foreign scientists were granted the Award for International S&T Cooperation, including Dr. Martin Atkins, Visiting Professor of the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, CAS and expert from the British Petroleum Corporation (BP), for his contribution to the Sino-UK S&T cooperation in the petrochemical field.

As a chemical engineer, Dr. Martin Atkins has devoted himself to the promotion of industrialization of applied technologies. He has been working as manager of the BP-China Cooperation Project since 2004. At present, BP and the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, CAS has signed a cooperation agreement on Hydrogen Separation Membrane and syngas to transport fuel, aiming to transform the research results into applied technology.

R&D Center of Advanced Metal Materials Formed

On Feb. 9, Foxconn and the Institute of Metal Research, CAS held a ceremony to sign an agreement on the project of namo-copper and magnesium-alloy for vehicle parts in Shenyang. Both sides decided to co-build a R&D Center of Advanced Metal Materials which is in corporate nature, and they will first start joint R&D in namo-copper-products for the 3C industries (Computer, Communication and Consumption electronics) and magnesium-alloy vehicle parts.
