Tianyancha information shows that on September 16, the industrial and commercial information of Shendi Semiconductor changed, adding Shenzhen Hubble, Chen Datong and other shareholders. Among them, the investment amount of Chen Datong is 89,300 US dollars, and the shareholding ratio is 0.59%, while the investment amount and shareholding ratio of Shenzhen Hubble have not been disclosed.
Products break the monopoly of Europe and the United States
It is reported that Shendi Semiconductor was founded by overseas students in the United States. It was established in 2008 with a registered capital of 15.0247 million US dollars. It is the first MEMS chip company in China to design and produce commercial MEMS gyroscope series inertial sensors. Its products are widely used in consumer electronics, Automotive electronics, Internet of Things (IOT), industrial Internet, smart home, smart city and other fields.
Since its establishment, Shendi Semiconductor’s technology research and development has made significant progress. In 2015, Shendi Semiconductor released China’s first integrated 6-axis IMU sensor; in 2019, Shendi Semiconductor successfully developed the first MEMS gyroscope chip again and achieved mass production, breaking the monopoly of a few European and American companies.
According to the official website information, Shendi Semiconductor has developed advanced MEMS process and integration technology with completely independent intellectual property rights, focusing on the design and production of low-cost, cost-effective, low-power, small-size commercial MEMS for the consumer electronics and automotive electronics markets. Gyroscope chip. In addition, in order to meet the needs of the rapidly growing emerging consumer electronics market, Shendi Semiconductor has also established the country’s first large-scale MEMS gyroscope calibration and test base.
Huawei’s second investment
According to Tianyancha data, Shendi Semiconductor has completed more than 10 rounds of financing. Investors include Zhejiang University Lianchuang Investment, Ruiling Capital, Jinpu Investment, Huiyou Investment, Huawei, etc.
