Set-top box chip supplier "Hangzhou Guoxin Technology" officially announced that it has received hundreds of millions of yuan in Series C financing. This round of financing was led by CITIC Securities Investment, followed by Gaorong Capital, Haier Capital, and Yaotu Capital. A round of investment institutions continued to follow suit. The financing funds will be mainly used to expand industry scenarios.

Founded in 2001, Guoxin Technology focuses on chip design and system solution development in the field of digital TV and Internet of Things artificial intelligence, and is committed to becoming a leader in smart life chips and solutions.

Guoxin Technology is a set-top box core supplier. The digital set-top box chip it has developed has shipped nearly 400 million products.

The official website shows that as early as 2016, Guoxin Technology established the artificial intelligence division and began to work on AI chips. After 4 years of development, Guoxin Technology’s AI chips have been implanted in many home and home appliance products, and extended from homes to in-car scenes, realizing the full coverage of “people-car-home” AI scenes, completing smart speakers, smart Cars, smart homes, and smart wearable roads.

At the same time, artificial intelligence is also a new direction for Nationalchip's key investment. In 2017, Guoxin Technology launched the first IoT AI chip GX8010, which integrates the self-developed neural network processor gxNPU of Guoxin Technology, which can be used to accelerate neural network operations.

In addition, at the same time as GX8010, National Core Technology also released the AIoT voice chip GX8008. The chip is equipped with domestic CPU and domestic NPU. It can be applied to smart homes, smart cars and other fields. It performs smart voice front-end processing for devices and supports local wake-up and Offline voice command recognition.

In 2020, Guoxin Technology launched the ultra-low power AI chip GX8002, with a power consumption as low as 70uW, integrating the second-generation self-developed neural network processor gxNPU V200 and self-developed hardware VAD module. With its ultra-low power consumption, GX8002 can be widely used in smart wearable fields such as TWS headsets, watches, and glasses.


It is understood that at this stage, Nationalchip's AI business has covered multiple application fields such as smart speakers, smart vehicles, smart home appliances, smart wearables, etc., covering scenarios such as "people-car-home". At present, Nationalchip's AI chips have been highly recognized by many first-line algorithms and Internet companies, and are highly recognized by Alibaba, JD.com, Baidu, 360, Rokid, Go Ask, iFLYTEK, Sonic, Speedy, Skyworth, TCL , Haier and other companies have reached in-depth cooperation.

Guoxin Technology CEO Zhijie said: “Nationalchip Technology has 20 years of technology accumulation in the audio and video field. In the era of new infrastructure, Nationalchip will continue to cultivate in various chip fields and continue to provide competitive chips and solutions for the industry. Plan."
