As an important town of integrated circuits in China, Wuxi's actions in the industrial field have been concerned. According to the data of 2022, the whole industrial chain of Wuxi integrated circuit achieved an output value of 209.152 billion yuan, an increase of 15.2%. It is not easy for Wuxi's IC industry to achieve such a development in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, the blockade imposed by the United States and other Western countries on China, and the decline in industry prosperity.
According to this scale, Wuxi continues to maintain the leading position in the province and the first phalanx in China.
Recently, Wuxi issued the "36" "Several Policies on Accelerating the construction of an internationally influential Integrated Circuit Landmark Industry", which once again caused concern in the industry.
This New Deal is the third iteration of the first integrated circuit industry special policy issued in Wuxi in 2016, which is the strongest in history. This special policy includes six aspects, including supporting the development and growth of the industry, supporting the innovation and development of enterprises, supporting the accelerated construction of projects, supporting the introduction and cultivation of talents, supporting the coordinated development of the industry, and supporting the improvement of the industrial environment, totaling 36 clauses.
Below, we will interpret it from 6 aspects for you.
First, we will support the development and growth of industries and consolidate the distinctive advantages of the whole industrial chain.
It includes five clauses, including supporting the economic development of the headquarters, introducing high-quality design enterprises, cultivating integrated circuit "chain master" enterprises, cultivating "specialized and special new" enterprises, and encouraging enterprises to go public. For the integrated circuit enterprise identified as the headquarters, a maximum of 60 million yuan can be awarded;
To attract high-quality design enterprises, give up to 5 million yuan one-time support; For the manufacturing industry single champion, specialized new enterprises are given support; Cultivate more listed integrated circuit enterprises, and strengthen the "Wuxi plate" of listed integrated circuit enterprises.
Second, we will support the innovation and development of enterprises and focus on solving key core technologies.
It includes five provisions, including support for core technology research, support for the first turn of integrated circuit products, support for the development and industrialization of EDA tools, support for the construction of high-level innovation platforms, and support for enterprises to establish overseas research and development institutions. To carry out core technology research mainly focus on the "Taihu Light" project, increase support, the highest breakthrough to 10 million yuan; Film subsidies highlight the orientation, focusing on supporting two circles and two chains, general products up to 3 million yuan, high-end products up to 6 million yuan; Support the development, promotion and application of integrated circuit design EDA tools in our city.
Supporting the construction of high-level innovation carriers mainly supports the newly identified national and provincial innovation centers for integrated circuits, with a maximum support of 50 million yuan. Operating subsidies for enterprises to set up overseas research and development centers to support enterprises to strengthen overseas layout is also a strong measure to proactively respond to the current situation.
Third, support projects to accelerate construction and consolidate the basic foundation for industrial development.
It mainly includes four clauses to support the construction of major projects, support the intelligent transformation of enterprises, support the improvement of the level of integrated circuit manufacturing, and encourage the undertaking of national and provincial special strategic tasks. Support the introduction and construction of major projects of wafer manufacturing production lines to provide solid manufacturing support for the industrial development of our city.
The main purpose of supporting the existing production line to improve the technical level is to encourage integrated circuit packaging and testing and wafer manufacturing enterprises to upgrade the original production line, improve the process level, and give priority to support in accordance with the industrial investment major project support policy. To undertake national and provincial special strategic tasks are mainly national and provincial major projects, which fully reflects Wuxi's responsibility.
Fourth, we will support the introduction and cultivation of talent and inject momentum into industrial innovation and development.
It mainly includes five provisions, including supporting the introduction of strategic scientists, supporting high-level innovation and entrepreneurship, supporting key enterprises to hire key talents, supporting colleges and universities to strengthen talent training, and supporting the peaceful development of all types of talents. For the newly introduced IC top talent team, referring to the "Taihu Talent" series of policies, "one thing one discussion" gives up to 100 million yuan of financial support, and for the qualified innovation and entrepreneurship leading talent team, it also gives up to 10 million yuan of financial support;
For the recruitment of key talents by enterprises, the reward conditions are more direct and clear, no more than 500,000 per person per year, and no more than 5 million for a single enterprise, which is conducive to the recruitment of talents by enterprises. At the same time, in the children's enrollment, pension, medical care, housing and other aspects, also through the urban linkage way to give support.
Fifth, support the coordinated development of industries and enhance the resilience of industrial and supply chains.
It mainly includes five provisions, including supporting the industrialization of high-end equipment and key materials, supporting manufacturing enterprises to purchase domestic equipment and materials, encouraging the first set (set) certification of integrated circuit equipment, encouraging the insurance of the first set (set) of major technical equipment of integrated circuit, and encouraging enterprises to pass the qualification filing.
These policies can form a set of small special policy system to support the development of integrated circuit equipment and materials, from the research and development, production end to the application end have special policies, and the comprehensive, systematic and accurate policy is at the leading level in China. At the same time, the vehicle regulation level certification is an innovative policy.
Sixth, support the improvement of the industrial environment and promote the accelerated development of industrial clusters.
A total of 11 policies have been set up to support the construction of characteristic industrial parks. It aims to build a number of high-quality integrated circuit characteristic parks and promote the development of integrated circuit industry agglomeration. Promote the development of various resource elements to enable the industry, support the development of enterprises from many aspects such as funds, insurance, and public services, and solidly implement the state's preferential tax policies on integrated circuits.
According to the actual situation of Wuxi, special policies have been set up in the construction of the Yangtze River Delta electronic components distribution center and the development of supporting and promoting institutions. At the same time, all localities are encouraged to actively hold major industrial activities to expand their influence and create an environment for industrial development.
To sum it up, it is:
Pay more attention to systematic, targeted, innovative, but also pay more attention to come up with "real money", increase subsidies.
In the current environment, the introduction of heavy integrated circuits "36", Wuxi's intention?
From the "36", you can see the coherence of Wuxi's integrated circuit industry policy, and you can see the "pertinency" of outstanding problems.
For example, the stream chip policy is tilted to high-end chips, core technology research is intensified, major projects are floating from 5 million to 10 million, and the direct award of key talents is designed for high-end chip products, talent introduction difficulties, core technology "jam neck" and other problems, which is very accurate.
From the "36", we can also see the responsibility of the city of Wuxi.
At present, Wuxi has the "Policy Opinions on supporting the high-quality development of modern industry" and other supporting policies, but the current integrated circuit industry environment has undergone great changes, the need for more targeted, more powerful special policies, especially in high-end chips, advanced packaging, equipment and materials and other national strategic areas to increase support, Wuxi this move is to use special support, To strengthen the confidence of enterprise development, to give enterprises to eat more "reassurance".
Big data, cloud computing, new energy, artificial intelligence and other technologies to accelerate the innovation of the application of change, for integrated circuit technology innovation and industrial development to provide a broad space, from the 1960s Jiangnan radio equipment factory "cotton lane factory", to today's various heroes gathered, industrial heights gradually become, Taihu pearl is "core" fire attitude, Write a more brilliant chapter. More than once, experts have evaluated: Wuxi is a rare city in the country with a complete integrated circuit industry chain, covering chip design, wafer manufacturing, packaging and testing, supporting materials and support services and other fields, the integrated circuit industry can be said to be the "epitome" of the development of Wuxi manufacturing industry.
Today, Wuxi has proposed to build a "465" modern industrial system, expand and strengthen the four landmark industries of the Internet of Things, integrated circuits, biomedicine, software and information technology services, and develop and expand the six advantageous industries of high-end equipment, high-end textile and clothing, energy conservation and environmental protection, new materials, new energy, automobiles and parts. We will accelerate the cultivation of five future industries: artificial intelligence, quantum technology, third-generation semiconductors, hydrogen energy and energy storage, and deep-sea equipment. Integrated circuits, a landmark industry that Wuxi will strive to build in the future, are attracting more and more attention and gathering more surging development momentum.
