Shanghai-based semiconductor startup, Starfive, co-founded by Peter Lee Ka Kit, is set to establish a research and development center in Hong Kong in collaboration with Xfusion Digital Technologies, a move aimed at enhancing the underdeveloped semiconductor industry in the region. The company specializes in developing semiconductors based on the RISC-V architecture, offering a free alternative to dominant architectures like x86 and Arm. The partnership will also focus on developing a new data center chip to optimize energy efficiency. This initiative is crucial in light of China's efforts to overcome trade restrictions on advanced chip technology. Starfive's collaboration with Xfusion is a significant step towards bolstering Hong Kong's semiconductor boom, aligning with the city's strategy to advance its chip development and digital infrastructure. The startup has raised significant funding and aims to leverage Hong Kong's research policies and talent pool for technological innovation and commercial applications.
