The 14th China International Semiconductor Lighting Forum and 2017 International 3rd Generation Semiconductor Forum were held in Beijing. Both of these international forums are sponsored by the People's Government of Shunyi District in Beijing, the Third-Generation Semiconductor Industry Strategic Innovation Alliance (CASA) and the National Semiconductor Lighting Engineering R&D and Industry Alliance (CSA). At the forum, relevant experts stated that China's semiconductor lighting industry has achieved "taking the lead" to "leading the way" and is moving toward the goal of realizing an industrial power. China's third-generation semiconductor applications have basic advantages, and the third generation of semiconductor innovation is ripe for development.

Since the launch of the National Semiconductor Lighting Project, China's semiconductor lighting industry has developed rapidly. In particular, since the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” period, the State has continuously strengthened the research, development and promotion of high-efficiency lighting products by strengthening macro-level guidance, strengthening scientific and technological innovations, improving policy standards, implementing energy-saving reforms, and promoting the application of demonstrations to promote green transformation of the lighting industry. . Xu Qiang, Director of the National Energy Conservation Center of the National Development and Reform Commission, said that the National Development and Reform Commission has successively issued the "Opinions on the Development of Semiconductor Lighting Energy-saving Industry" and the "Semiconductor Lighting Energy-saving Industry Plan" in conjunction with the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Housing, and the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine. ” To improve lighting energy efficiency and promote the development of the semiconductor industry has achieved remarkable results.

Data show that at present, more than 600,000 incandescent lamps for general lighting in China have been completely eliminated, and the market share of incandescent lamps is less than 5%. Through the implementation of energy-saving products Huimin project to promote energy-saving lamps LED high-efficiency lighting products 780 million. In 2016, the output value of the semiconductor lighting industry reached 520 billion yuan, an increase of 23% over 2015. The number of mainboard listed companies with LED core business grew from 2 in 2010 to 35. China has become the world's largest producer, consumer, and exporter of semiconductor lighting.

Semiconductor lighting is only the first successful application of third-generation semiconductor materials. The reporter learned that the third generation of semiconductors is the core material and key device for the new generation of power electronics, mobile communications and optoelectronics applications. It will trigger disruptive technological revolutions in the fields of energy, transportation and communications, and further promote the green and sustainable development of the industry. .

 At present, China's third-generation semiconductors have been listed in one of the seven major directions of the 2030 National New Materials Major Project and are in a critical period of R&D and industrialization. Moreover, compared to silicon-based semiconductors, the development of the third-generation semiconductor industry in the world is in its infancy, and China has a huge market demand. In the third-generation semiconductor industry, it is expected that the entire innovation chain will enter the world's advanced ranks.

Chairman of the International Semiconductor Lighting Alliance and former Deputy Minister of Science and Technology, Cao Jianlin, also pointed out that at present, semiconductor lighting in the optoelectronics field has already established its dominant position in the field of lighting. The world of power electronics and microwave radio frequency is at an early stage. China's third-generation semiconductor applications have basic advantages, and the third generation of semiconductor innovation is ripe for development.

According to analysis, at present, the international semiconductor industry and equipment giants have not yet formed patents, standards and scale monopoly. From the domestic point of view, China's precision processing technology and supporting capabilities have made rapid progress, and it has been able to develop and gradually dominate the capabilities of third-generation semiconductor equipment. Due to the needs of industrial transformation and upgrading, the development enthusiasm is high. In recent years, China's rapid development in the LED field has also laid a good foundation for the development of three generations of semiconductors.

It is worth noting that the current global semiconductor lighting industry is in a critical period of multiple power and common development, and the industrial structure is constantly adjusted, full of changes, opportunities and challenges.

 Sanan Optoelectronics Co., Ltd. is the first LED listed company in China. In recent years, thanks to the strength of the capital market, Sanan’s photoelectric development has been very steady, laying a solid foundation for the development of third-generation semiconductors. The person in charge of Sanan Optoelectronics also frankly stated that the third-generation semiconductor technology has a relatively high threshold for technology research and development, and the need for capital investment is also relatively large. From the perspective of domestic talent reserves, it is still relatively urgent to be familiar with batch-oriented, large-scale manufacturing and manufacturing personnel. These are common problems that domestic companies must strive to overcome.

 According to the plan, by 2025, China will strive to achieve the third-generation semiconductor technology in the world leading, industrial scale to achieve the world's first; by 2030 the entire industry chain has reached the international advanced level, the core device localization rate of more than 70%.

Cao Jianlin suggested that in the development of the third-generation semiconductor industry, regional advantages should be brought into play, with a differentiated layout, complete chain design, and integrated implementation to avoid duplication of investment and avoid vicious competition. Relying on alliances to build a development model for the interest community and R&D industrial capital collaborative innovation, we will focus on international cooperation and comprehensively and deeply integrate international resources.
