According to the Economic Daily, yesterday, MediaTek Chairman Cai Mingjie was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Contribution Award for the 40th Anniversary of Bamboo Science. In his speech, Cai Mingjie said that the 40th anniversary of Zhuke's establishment, during which Zhuke faced various challenges, by this year, Taiwan's confident semiconductor production value has become the world's second largest.
At the same time, this year MediaTek’s annual revenue will exceed 10 billion U.S. dollars for the first time. This shows that the semiconductor industry in Taiwan, China has indeed grown greatly, and MediaTek’s position in the global semiconductor industry has also greatly improved. He also looks forward to the future. More people can join Taiwan's semiconductor industry.
Previously, MediaTek announced its November revenue performance, with a monthly increase of 10.18% and an annual increase of 62.67%. The monthly revenue hit the second highest in history. In terms of MediaTek’s financial forecast, as long as its revenue in December reaches 25.523 billion yuan, it can easily reach the financial forecast. Not only that, based on the current exchange rate of NT, MediaTek’s cumulative revenue in the first 11 months alone reached 10 billion. The US dollar successfully ranks among the top semiconductor companies in the world.
Industry insiders pointed out that among the global IC design vendors, only Qualcomm, Broadcom and Nvidia had the ability to cross the threshold of "annual revenue of tens of billions of dollars" in the past. Therefore, "annual revenue of tens of billions of dollars" has been regarded by the industry as "natural insurance".
The rapid growth of performance in 2020 is derived from MediaTek's comprehensive progress in smart phones, tablets, routers, smart TVs and other fields. Among them, the smart phone business attracts the most attention.
Previously, MediaTek released the Dimensity 700, the newest member of the Dimensity series of 5G chips. This is a 7nm process-oriented chip for mid-range 5G mobile phones that supports 5G dual carrier aggregation (2CC 5G-CA) and 5G dual card dual Standby (DSDS), and faster and clearer 5G VoNR voice services. Dimensity 700 uses an eight-core CPU architecture, including two large core Arm Cortex-A76, with a main frequency of up to 2.2GHz.
It is expected that for MediaTek, in the 5G era, the mobile phone chip market is only the first hurdle, including more applications such as laptops and the Internet of Things, and it is also an important market that can bring more diversified product portfolios and revenue in the future. In addition, since the semiconductor industry is still a seller's market in mainland China, as the Chinese government urgently needs to get rid of the dependence on American technology, more excellent companies will continue to emerge in the fields of semiconductor IC, packaging and testing, and substrate carrier production, such as HOREXS in 2021 At the beginning, it has increased investment in equipment and plant construction to strive for a larger market share of IC substrates.
