SMIC Invests in $ 2.35 Billion Manufacturing in Shenzhen

Published

on

Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. (SMIC) today announced that it plans to work with Shenzhen to invest in a 40,000 wafer-per-month factory located in the city. The enterprise value is $ 2.35 billion.

SMIC, the largest chip maker in China, said it will own 55% of its subsidiary SMIC Shenzhen, the alleged operator of the project, under a framework cooperation agreement. The state-owned company Shenzhen Major, which is SMIC’s partner, will receive no more than 23%. The rest of the funding will come from outside investors, whom the company and the Shenzhen management plan to raise jointly.

This venture will enable SMIC to ramp up its chip production in response to growing demand for electronic devices. The company said in a statement that the factory in Shenzhen will be “focused on 28nm or more.” Production is due to start next year.

NASA to explore saving Hubble with SpaceX Dragon spacecraft

The US space agency NASA has announced an agreement with SpaceX. As part of this agreement, the possibility of launching the Hubble telescope into a higher orbit using the Dragon spacecraft will be explored. The Hubble Telescope was launched in 1990 using the Space Shuttle, and it served the space observatory until 2011, when the use of the shuttles was discontinued. After that, there was nothing to serve Hubble, as a result, the telescope’s orbit gradually decreases as it slows down on the atmosphere. So, now the observatory is operating at an altitude of 540 km compared to the original 610 km. If the telescope is not lifted with a powered ship, it will gradually de-orbit, it is assumed that this will happen in about 15 years.

According to NASA, the agency is working with SpaceX and Polaris to explore the possibility of serving Hubble with Dragon spacecraft. The study is expected to take approximately 6 months. The idea was submitted by Elon Musk’s company, the study will help to better understand the technical problems associated with maintaining the telescope. NASA also notes that if such a mission is implemented, it will become commercial, at no cost to the government. If it is possible to lift Hubble into a higher orbit, then its service life will increase by several years. After that time, NASA plans to safely deorbit the telescope or dispose of it. The agency said the study is not exclusive and other companies may offer similar programs using their spacecraft.

Apparently, in the US it will really be possible to buy a GeForce RTX 4090 for the recommended $ 1,600, MSI and Asus have such options. Moreover, MSI has a version of the GeForce RTX 4090 and is not much more expensive – for $ 1650. What’s more, the same company has an all-in-one liquid cooling option for $1,750. Given the TDP of the GeForce RTX 4090, this option may be in high demand, as it should be more efficient than a regular air one.
