The home appliance chip enters the autonomous stage supply to achieve another breakthrough

The home appliance chip enters the autonomous stage supply to achieve another breakthrough

As the world’s largest home appliance market and manufacturing center, China’s home appliance industry not only occupies absolute dominance in product manufacturing, but earlier, there is already a key component including compressors, motors, controllers, panels, molds and other key components. Self-developing capabilities, many large home appliance companies have their own R & D sectors and production bases on the above parts, but there is no key breakthrough in the chip field, which has become a short board for China’s home appliance manufacturing supply. In recent years, this situation has been reversed. Most large home appliance companies have contained in the chip field in the past few years, not only to meet the needs of their own machine, but also vigorously promote marketization process, home appliance companies in the chip field in 2021 Enter a mass production phase. The chip layout has been in 2018, and Shanghai Mei Ren Semiconductor is established, which means that the United States officially enters the chip and semiconductor field.

Mei Ren Semiconductor has completed comprehensive product testing in the United States of the Group’s home air conditioners, HVAC and hot water delivery, and the Department of Water and Water Decision. Also in 2018, Gree Electric is set up a wholly-owned subsidiary Zhuhai Zero Boundary Integrated Circuit Co., Ltd., which can be regarded as a key point in the chip field to enter in-depth expansion. The predecessor of Zhuhai Zero Boundary Integrated Circuit Co., Ltd. is Gree Microelectronics and Semiconductor Research Institute, which has already accumulated and precipitated in this regard. In January last year, Galanz Group and Henderson (China), Sai Xi Technology jointly became Guangdong Yuexi Technology Co., Ltd., in Guangdong Shunde layout chip project, less than a year, Guangdong Yuexi Technology related chip products Production cycle. Hisense’s involvement of chips is earlier than most home appliances, which has been developed in 2005. In June 2019, Hisense reorganized chip business, and formed Qingdao Cix Micro Electronic Technology Co., Ltd.. TCL is also in-depth chip industry. In early March this year, TCL Technology announced and established TCL Semiconductor Technology (Guangdong) Co., Ltd..

Not only the above enterprises, Hisense has a longer penetration for chips, in recent years, Konka, Changhong and other companies have joined the chip track.

In 2021, it is a key year in the development of home appliance enterprises in the chip field. One of the key factors is that this year’s home appliance company’s self-produced chip can not only gradually meet its own needs, but also open a comprehensive marketization process. It is understood that the overall demand of domestic appliance chips is about 50 billion, and some home appliance companies have promoted the chip as a revenue project.

Supply end implementation, in addition to the core components of the compressor, heat exchanger, controller, motor, mold, etc., the realization of the autonomous production capacity of the chip, and makes a short board in the upstream supply terminal.

The author learned that Mei Ren semiconductor is in the chip service with the home appliance chip as an entry point, forms the four major products of the MCU chip, IoT chip, power supply chip and power chip.

Gree’s wholly-owned subsidiary Zhuhai Zero Boundary Integrated Circuit Co., Ltd. mainly produces MCU main control chips, and the new MCU new product in the remote control, the same amount of production and sales. The chip of Galanz is applied to its own kitchen appliances, and the products of life, and also covers smart home, industrial control and smart city and building.

The disclosure shows that the business of the TCL semiconductor industry involves integrated circuit chip design, semiconductor power devices, and the like, where the focus is to develop drive chips, intelligent speech chips, and the like.

The initiatives of Hisense, Konka, etc. are similar to those of the above enterprises. Under normal circumstances, they will start with self-demand, and then gradually promote external promotion and marketization.

All major appliance companies have invested and form a research and sales system to some extent, in a certain extent, the short-term problems faced by the manufacturer, and further enhanced the technology level and image of China’s home appliance manufacturing.

Technical upgrading is to push intelligent needs to point out that the chips needed by home appliances are relatively low compared to technical requirements in mobile communication sectors; and the chip manufacturing of domestic home appliance companies, mostly concentrated in packaging, design links, more upstream Wafer products, home appliance companies are difficult to form large area coverage in the short term.

With the development of chip production and sales and further strengthening of various enterprises, some of the supply and demand contradictions of some chip products in domestic home appliances will be relieved; this situation is also conducive to major appliance companies that have been intelligent, intelligent strategy. Especially in the United States, TCL and more, enterprises that are intelligent to enter the enterprise development strategy, and the intelligent technology support is required, and more solid technical support is needed. Moreover, intelligent is still from single product To the settling, from a set of intelligence to the whole house. More importantly, the rise of wisdom buildings, smart cities, etc., intelligent is more than just enterprise strategies and industry behaviors, but a social trend.

The author also learned that some home appliance companies are also in one upgrade channel in the development and manufacturing of chips, from around 100 nanometers to 20 nm or even more tips. Since various companies continue to invest resources in this regard, this collective initiative will further drive progress in the entire chip manufacturing, of course, the resulting competition is inevitable.
