SIMIT History

Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, formerly known as the Shanghai Institute of Metallurgy, formerly known as the National Institute of Engineering Research, established in 1928, is one of the earliest engineering and research institutions in China. After the founding of new China under the Chinese Academy of Sciences, has named the Chinese Academy of Engineering Engineering Laboratory, Institute of Metallurgical Ceramics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. August 2001, according to the disciplines and research objectives of the adjustment, changed its name to the Chinese Academy of Sciences Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technology, referred to as the Shanghai Microsystems.


In the course of eighty years of development, Shanghai micro-system has always been around the national strategic needs, adjust the layout of scientific research, played a backbone of the national economic construction leading role. The fifties of the last century, the first in the country to successfully develop ductile iron, a successful solution to the high-fluorine-containing iron ore in Baotou smelting and rare earth element recovery. In the mid-1960s, the development of microelectronics and integrated circuit manufacturing technology, and the industrial sector to develop the first domestic industrial practical PN junction isolation IC, ECL high-speed circuit and the first domestic 8-bit, 16-bit microprocessor. In the mid-eighties, the development of microelectromechanics systems (MEMS) and silicon-on-insulator (SOI) materials, the leading domestic position, and occupy an important place in the international arena.

1998 into the knowledge innovation project, the Shanghai micro-system successfully launched on the 1st innovation 01,02 and 03 stars, "Shenzhou VII" companion, is an important development base of China's small satellites; the implementation of the Shanghai World Expo anti-invasion sensor network, Pudong Airport anti-intrusion system, Taihu Lake water quality monitoring sensor network, the South-North Water Diversion Middle Route Security System and other things networking demonstration project, leading the Internet of things core technology, pushed up the national strategic emerging industries; developed with independent intellectual property rights broadband wireless communication system , Applied to Wenchuan and Yushu earthquake rescue, the Shanghai World Expo and other major events in the earthquake relief, stability, public safety, digital city, etc. played an irreplaceable role; SOI material to achieve industrialization, to fill the gaps, applied to the country's major key projects , Holding the Shanghai proud of the new Technology Co., Ltd. is the only one with the international advanced level of national high-end silicon-based materials industry base.

"Twelve Five" period, the Shanghai Microsystems as the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the first system-level model of the overall technical unit, breaking the multi-functional composite sensor and other key technologies, established a special broadband wireless sensor network system solutions, China's large-scale application of related units and communication system from narrowband to broadband technology across. The successful development of the first domestic SOI-based 0.13um process of large-scale high-reliability ASIC ASIC chip, used in Beidou navigation satellite and other key national projects for China's core components of space control and lay a solid foundation. Superconductivity single photon detector SNSPD help in the University of Pan Panwei academician in the international community for the first time to prevent hacking 200 km measurement device independent quantum key distribution, the results selected two academicians in 2014 China's top ten scientific and technological progress. Ultra-high g acceleration sensor for China's strategic equipment provides an irreplaceable product, breaking the international embargo. Launched the establishment of the MEMS technology industry platform - Shanghai Micro Technology Industry Research Institute was listed as the construction of Shanghai has a global influence of the center of the "four pillars."

Since the founding of the country, Shanghai micro-system won the national science and technology awards 46, the provincial level 347, of which "a separation membrane" technology by the National Science and Technology Progress Award, "high-speed, ultra-high-speed bipolar digital integrated circuits" "High-end silicon-based SOI materials research and development and industrialization" by the National Science and Technology Progress Award.


Shanghai micro-system of the existing sensor technology, information functional materials, micro-system technology three state-level key laboratories, wireless sensor network and communications, terahertz solid-state two key laboratory of Chinese Academy of Sciences, and relying on the Shanghai Microsystems Established the Chinese Academy of Sciences superconducting electronics excellence innovation center.

Shanghai micro-system with wireless sensor network business and sensor technology, information functional materials, terahertz solid-state technology, broadband wireless, new energy, superconductivity, bionic visual seven research in Shanghai, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Jiaxing, Nantong and local cooperation to build six branches, and the German Helmholtz Association in the Lixi Research Center to build a superconductivity and bioelectronics joint laboratory, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences Institute of micro-satellite innovation was built High reliability device collaborative innovation design center, and the China University of Science and Technology to build a superconducting quantum devices and quantum information joint laboratory, and so on.

Talented Persons

Shanghai micro-system existing staff of 612 people, including first-line technology and management staff of 574 people, researchers and senior engineering and technical personnel 99 people, the Chinese Academy of Sciences 2, the United States National Academy of Sciences foreign academician 1, a national "thousands of people Plan "7 people and young people" plan "2 people, the National Outstanding Youth Science Foundation winner 4, the National Excellent Young Science Fund winner 1, the Chinese Academy of Sciences" hundred people plan "21 people, the national" millions of talent project "Selected 5 people, Shanghai science and technology leading talent 8 times.

Shanghai Microsystems is one of the first batch of doctoral and master's degree granting units approved by the Academic Degrees Committee of the State Council. It has two major disciplines of electronic science and technology, information and communication engineering. PhD / MS graduate training, materials physics and chemistry Two subjects doctoral / postgraduate training point, there are electronic science and technology, materials science and engineering two professional first-class post-doctoral flow station. There are 445 graduate students, including 238 master's degree, 207 doctoral students, 39 post-doctoral postdoctoral.


For the "thirteen five", Shanghai micro-system will be in accordance with the "front for the world science and technology, for the country's major needs for the main battlefield of the national economy," the new era of hospital policy, give full play to electronic science and technology, information and communication engineering two universities (ICT) field is irreplaceable, and it is an important substitute for the development of information network / communication (ICT), and it is an important substitute for the development of information network / communication (ICT) Four first-class "national research institutions, for the construction of innovative countries and the world's science and technology to make greater contributions to the country.
