SIMIT, SMIC and SSC established Shanghai Xinchu Integrated Circuit Co., Ltd. jointly. The SIMIT/SMIC/SST cooperation team will participate in the R&D and production of key IC project (the key technology and application of PCRAM engineering). As PCRAM is a huge project participated by several parties and composed of many sub-projects, the management organisation is formally set up for the purpose of improving the team management, promoting the cooperation efficiency and ensuring the completion of the target in conformity with the specified time and quantity. The team has altogether 70 people, including 40 from SIMIT, 22 from MIC and 8 from SST, consisting of the management committee, the labour committee, the technology team and the secretary team.
