As you all know SMIC is currently a Fab House, manufacturing chips for all types of vendors. It currently owns state of art 28nm technology CMOS 12 inch fab at shanghai, beijing, and Wuhan.

It's China 's most advanced Fab house.  However, SMIC doesn't make any product.

Well, under the new plan and new investment it's all going to change. Not only SMIC does manufacturing for vendors, it will also build standard products with big focus on analog Chips.

Besides CMOS tech, the new plan calls for SMIC to get into galium arsenide fab to do wireless transceiver chips.

The analog Chips including ADC, DAC, Clock chip, USB transceiver, Wireless transciever, Bluetooth transceiver, infrared sensor, CMOS image sensor, opto drivers, volatge regulator, Opamp, filters, pressure sensor, ...etc basically An one stop shop for all China's need on the analog domain.

The plan is to leverage SMIC expertise on Fab process and then build standard products , the goal to make SMIC into a China's first world class semiconductor company like Korea's Samsung

China investing in plant equipment is good but that's not enough. China should invest more in R&D to develop its own semiconductor processes, IC packaging, test equipment, wafer fab equipment, CAD/CAM, IC designs, etc.

,
The over the goal achievement would to make SMIC into a China's first world class semiconductor company like "Nokia!"
I really miss Nokia's world known quality for toughness
