Thanks to government sponsorship and outside capital investment China has become a major player in the semiconductor industry. For example, according to Strategic Marketing Associates Intel employs 2,400 people in China having invested more than $1B in China including a $500 million plant in Shanghai to produce Pentium 4 chips. Intel plans to build a second testing and assembly plant in China this year for $675 million in Chengdu, in southwestern China. Already, more than 10 percent of Intel's yearly revenue of $30 billion comes from China, the company's biggest customer outside the United States. Much of the chip-industry activity is taking place in the area near Shanghai known as
Pudong. The Shanghai government has invested about $13 billion in Pudong's infrastructure. Zhang Qi, director of the Administration Department of Electronic and Information Products with the ministry, recently said the country will invest 10 billion US dollars in the semiconductor sector by 2005.


All the leading EDA vendors are partnering with Ministries and Universities to create an educated workforce for IC design and for their products. Even smaller EDA firms are opening up operations in China. For example, in December
Altium announced the establishment of a direct presence and a strengthened reseller network in China. In January
SynTest Technologies announced establishment of R&D and customer support operations in China and the appointment of Hyperform as distributor.
