Revolutionize The Way People Think About Chinese Fabless Semiconductor Companies

2017/01/01 Shanghai/Beijing/Silicon Valley Several

We are a Shanghai/Silicon-Valley based stealth-mode semiconductor startup, A-Round and B-Round VC-backed by Walden International -- one of the world’s leading venture capital firm for semiconductors. We develop highly-integrated photonic-electronic solutions for high-growth industries such as optical networking and next-generation IOT systems.  Optical-ICs is one of the hottest areas today, due to the “Optical Supercycle” -- Big-Data and China.

Our returnee founders are successful entrepreneurs with backgrounds from Stanford, Oregon-State, Fudan, Intel, LSI and NVidia. They have been involved in six successful startups, with their last IC startup in Shanghai previously acquired for 8.5x return in < 5 years.  

Our company culture is like a Silicon-Valley startup, with a unique USA/China blend of innovation. Our vision is to learn, challenge, and grow, creating exponential value for our customers, ourselves, and our company.

NOW is the golden-age for ICs in China – seize it!
