HiSilicon (Shanghai) and Changhong Holding Group have officially completed the implementation of their jointly-developed, 5G-enabled industrial Internet production line. It is hoped that this production line, named the Changhong 5G industrial Internet smart TV mass customization production line (5G smart manufacturing production line), will usher in a new era for commercial 5G industrial modules.
Since its trial operation in January 2020, the production line has produced 250,000 smart TVs. Through effective collaboration on multiple 5G industrial solutions, efficiency has been improved by 60%, establishing a benchmark for how to digitally transform the manufacturing industry.
To accelerate the large-scale commercial use of 5G plus smart manufacturing throughout the industry, HiSilicon (Shanghai) and Sichuan AI-Link Technology Co., Ltd. (Changhong AI-Link) signed a license and cooperation agreement for 5G industrial modules today. The signatories were Duan Enchuan, Chairman of Changhong AI-Link, and Sun Weifeng, President of HiSilicon (Shanghai) Sales and Technical Service. Zhao Yong, Chairman of Sichuan Changhong Electronic Holding Group Co., Ltd., Zheng Guang Qing, Deputy General Manager of Sichuan Changhong Electric Co. Ltd., and Xiong Wei, President of HiSilicon (Shanghai) Technology Co., Ltd. also attended the signing ceremony.
Zhao Yong highlighted the achievements the two parties had made in terms of their joint innovation of 5G plus industrial Internet, and gave high praise to the contributions made by the innovation teams of both HiSilicon (Shanghai) and Changhong. "HiSilicon (Shanghai) is a leader in the field of 5G technologies, and has drawn on its long-term R&D investment and the technological expertise to develop world-leading 5G capabilities," said Zhao.
"Changhong AI-Link's success in launching the first 5G industrial Internet module was due to its vast experience in the field of connectivity technology as well as its collaboration with HiSilicon, an industry leader in 5G. This will accelerate the implementation of Changhong's 5G smart manufacturing production line and sets a benchmark for the smart digital transformation of traditional manufacturing." Zhao hopes that both parties will continue to pool their resources and work together to promote the large-scale commercial use of 5G and achieve mutually beneficial results.
"Changhong has a history of more than 60 years in the industrial manufacturing field. It focuses on innovation-driven development, dares to break down existing boundaries, and continuously leads the way with its innovative products," Xiong added. "It is also currently active in embracing 5G as a means to drive industrial upgrades and smart digital transformations, setting a good example for traditional manufacturing. The HiSilicon (Shanghai) industrial scenario research team has been working with Changhong Holdings Group to explore the diverse requirements of industrial manufacturing for 5G modules and inject capabilities such as super uplink, ultra-low latency, industrial-grade security, and extreme environment adaptation requirements into the industrial 5G pre-modules, helping Changhong to achieve the large-scale application of 5G smart manufacturing. We are delighted to work with Changhong AI-Link to share these successful experiences and build a prosperous 5G ecosystem."
HiSilicon (Shanghai) and Changhong Holding Group will continue to work closely to promote 5G plus smart manufacturing innovation to all industries, helping traditional manufacturing industries to achieve smart digital transformations and build new competitive advantages in the digital era.
