Advanced Digital Systems (ADS)

The Advanced Digital System Division (ADS) delivers state-of-the-art SoC design – from advanced algorithm research to IC specification and implementation to production IC testing. ADS plays an important role in the Hong Kong branch of Chinese National Engineering Research Centre (CNERC) for Application Specific Integrated Circuit System. It strives to create valuable silicon IPs through commercially viable in-house innovation. It targets emerging IC applications in IoT communication, 3D and 4K/8K video and machine learning platforms. ADS creates value by actively engaging with partners across relevant industries and by channelling the outputs of advanced research from local universities to commercialisation through IC realisation and customisation.

To enhance the competitive edge of industry partners, ADS offers market-competitive IPs and total turn-key IC solutions. ADS focuses on the following key technology initiatives:
• IoT Communication IC
• Hardware-oriented Secure Data Storage Platform
• 3D Immersive VR and 4K/8K Video
• SoC Design Services
• Machine Learning Platforms

ADS has five core competence groups, and together they offer the end-to-end system solutions:
• FinTech
• Communications
• Video
• SoC Design
