Good news came from the IC industry in Wuxi High-tech Zone. The SK Hynix M8 project with a total investment of US$1.4 billion was officially put into production.
Jiang Min, secretary of the Xinwu District Party Committee, stated in the host that in recent years, SK hynix has shown a good momentum of rapid development with the care and support of leaders at all levels of the province and city. The total investment of nearly 20 billion U.S. dollars has become a foreign investment project in our province. One of the most successful and dynamic models has laid a solid foundation for Wuxi High-tech Zone to build a 100-billion-level integrated circuit industry cluster. The M8 project was officially put into production today, setting a benchmark for the construction of global integrated circuit projects, pushing the cooperation and development of SK hynix and Wuxi to a new level, and also marking a new step in the development of Wuxi's integrated circuit industry.

We will accelerate the improvement of the advanced level of the integrated circuit industry and the modernization of the industrial chain, and strive to build Wuxi into a cluster of China's integrated circuit industry and the world's integrated circuit industry highland, with complete links, core technologies, scale effects, and competition. Advantageous world-class integrated circuit industry chain.
The M8 project refers to the 8-inch non-memory wafer project jointly invested and constructed by Haichen Semiconductor (Wuxi) Co., Ltd. and SK Hynix System Integrated Circuit (Wuxi) Co., Ltd. After the project is put into operation, it will produce 115,000 8-inch wafers a month, which is much higher than the average monthly production of 50,000 wafers by other domestic and foreign companies.
At present, global demand for 8-inch wafers is exploding. The M8 project has scarce high-performance 8-inch equipment and first-class technology. It can produce different products from 57nm to 500nm, which will help alleviate the current domestic shortage of 8-inch wafers and short supply. , To promote the stable and orderly development of the domestic IC design industry. The establishment of the M8 project in Wuxi and its smooth commissioning will help to consolidate Wuxi's position as the southern base of China's microelectronics industry, and will also help Wuxi become a world-class integrated semiconductor industry hub.
