Brandon Smith, President of Global Sources' joint venture subsidiary eMedia Asia Limited, said: "Since 2007, China ACE Awards has been recognizing the companies, technologies and people that facilitate the remarkable advances and innovations in China's electronics industry. This year, our judging panel has launched the Lifetime Achievement Award: China Semiconductor Industry to honor individuals who have made significant contributions to the industry, as well as to highlight the growing influence of China's IC industry in the local and global arena. The first recipient of this award is leading industry figure Dr. Wei Shaojun."

Throughout his remarkable career, Dr. Wei has developed many successful chips and now serves as the General Director of China Semiconductor Industry Association IC Design Branch. In this position, Dr. Wei actively promotes communications between the local semiconductor industry and other organizations and peers around the world, and works closely with the China government in crafting policies that advance the industry. His ongoing teaching career continues to contribute outstanding talent to the industry.

Yorbe Zhang, Head of Content of eMedia Asia and chair of the judging panel, added: "In addition to Dr. Wei, we are honoring Focal Tech CEO Genda Hu, who was voted Executive of the Year. For China's fast-growing and fiercely competitive smartphone market, Hu exemplifies the meaning of an industry leader by spearheading technology innovation and supply chain integration through acquisitions, ultimately resulting to the advanced development of smartphones we see in China today."

Recognition for the industry's best

Multinationals also took center stage at the awards ceremony for their innovative products and solutions. Texas Instruments was voted Company of the Year. Intel, Taiwan Semiconductor and ON Semiconductor won Most Promising Technology of the Year in the Internet of Things (IoT), Environmental and Life-saving categories, respectively, while China's Vimicro was awarded Start-up Technology of the Year for its SoC design. Winners of these Company Awards were determined through public online voting, from a shortlist of finalists chosen by the judging panel.
