On March 25, Apex Integrated Circuit Security Chip Project Based on Domestic 32-bit CPU won the Second Prize on Science & Technology of Guangdong at the Guangdong Science and Technology Innovation Conference. The meeting was hosted by Department of Science and Technology of Guangdong Province, aiming to select the individuals that have made outstanding contributions, and excellent innovative enterprises in natural science, technological invention, science and technology progress, and scientific and technological cooperation.

Apex has won the prize for the third time after 2012 and 2016. With over ten years of technological background and capabilities in IC chip design, Apex products extended from printer cartridge chips to printer controller SoC, and launched the universal MCU, Bluetooth low consumption SoC, and network communication security chip successfully in 2018. The high performance MCU for printer SoC awarded performs steadily for encryption and authentication, calculation and control applications. It is characterized by the advanced technological level in universal supplies industry with no less than 200MHz of chip main frequency, integrated USB that be convenience for program update, as well as the security architecture for integrated national encryption algorithm. All the above features have not only improved security and protection on products information, but also provides a strong verification basis for the breakthrough in domestic printer controller SoC.
The independent intellectual property rights is particularly important for the priority fields of high-tech industrialization, while the security chip based on  Xuantie 910 RISC-V CPU has obtained total eight patents, including six invention patents, one computer software copyright, and one integrated circuit layout design registration.


Constantly innovating in crisis has always been the philosophy of Apex. The outbreak of the COVID-19 has severely damaged the economy and threatened people's lives, made us feel the importance of science and technology and the need for innovation. As always, Apex will continue to focus on the development of IC industry, making its effort to the construction of a strong province of scientific and technological innovation and the implementation of building the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area into an international science and technology innovation center.
