On November 18, Dr. Bill Nie, chairman of FATRI, on behalf of Xiamen University's project "FATRI: China's Leading MEMS chip team", won the second place in the 2020 International Internet Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition. FATRI team performed excellent and made such a good result in 117 countries and regions at home and abroad, 4,186 schools and 6.31 million people!
The Sixth International Internet Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition was held at South China University of Technology. 683 projects talent show themselves from 1 million 470 thousand domestic and foreign competitions. Through the competition for the gold medal in the main track of higher education, the gold medal competition of "Youth Red Dream building Tour", the competition of three strong teams, the gold medal competition of vocational education track, and the championship competition, a total of 1 champion, 2 runner up, 3 second runner up and 143 gold prizes were determined.
The competition aims to promote innovation driven entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship leading employment, as a graduate of the school of Xiamen University, Dr. Bill Nie has transformed and applied the educational achievements and developed many products and solutions in the chip field with his knowledge.
Sun Chunlan, member of the Political Bureau of the 19th CPC Central Committee, vice premier of the State Council and member of the Party group, participated in the final of the competition.
She stressed that we should thoroughly study and implement the spirit of the party in the fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee and general secretary Xi Jinping's important exposition on education, deepen the reform of innovation and entrepreneurship education, build a high quality education system, and cultivate socialist builders and successors with all-round development of morality, intelligence, physical culture and labor, so as to better serve the development and modernization of high quality.

After Covid-19 outbreak in 2020, there has been an explosion of demand for thermometers. A handful sensor company have the ability of research the thermometer. Due to the complexity of chip research and development process, the difficulty in the process is more difficult. In order to overcomethe difficulties, Dr. Bill Nie engaged in the R&D day and night with FATRI team. Finally, FATRI team had broken the development bottleneck. After the mass production and delivery of the product, the chip had been tested by several well-known domestic manufacturers, and its precision, response rate and detection rate are all first-class in China, which has verified the excellent product performance and the strong scientific research strength of the team.

"The significance of this competition not only shows the wonderful event, but also motivates the great enthusiasm of young people for innovation and entrepreneurship. I hope that through the experience of the team, young people can be guided and encouraged to shoulder the responsibility of rejuvenation for the country, and I am grateful for the platform, support and security provided by the country, and aIma mater." Dr.Bill Nie said.
Wang Xi, now an alternate member of the 19th CPC Central Committee, vice governor of Guangdong provincial government and member of the Party group, personally presented the award to Dr. Bill Nie.

With the mission of "reverence for life, moving ourselves and moving our customers", Dr. Bill Nie won numerous encouragement in the field of scientific research, while enjoying the fun of scientific research in the fast lane of innovation.
FATRI is an integrated device manufacturer (IDM) founded by Dr. Bill Nie with comprehensive capabilities in chip and sensor material synthesis, chip design, manufacturing, packaging, and testing. It is dedicated to the control and monitoring of civil aviation, energy, health care, transportation, and industrial equipment, capable of creating the systematic solutions that integrate “end-edge-carrier-cloud-application.”
FATRI has always based its development on core sensing and artificial intelligence(AI) technologies, including advanced material technologies, chip technologies, sensor technologies, and AI algorithm technologies. The continuous and substantial investment in these fields makes it possible for the Company to obtain hundreds of new patents each year.
With Dr. Bill Nie's long-term research and development of chips and sensor products, FATRI has grown so rapidly. He is good at the research and development of testing and calibration systems for high temperature acceleration sensor, pressure sensors, displacement sensors, IMU, lidar, quantum sensors and other sensors. He took the lead in putting forward the theory of compensating temperature drift by using multi-layer composite high-temperature layered materials through thermal curve coupling internationally, thus making the temperature drift of high-temperature sensors from 18% to 1.5%.
In addition to chip research and development, FATRI aims at two markets, and conducts research on edge computing and cloud platform. "One is the localization of the stock market, and the other is the new application of the incremental market." Dr. Bill Nie hopes to solve the chip shortage crisis in China and make contributions to the global chip industry through some disruptive innovations.
Winning this competition is only a starting point for FATRI. In the future, FATRI will adhere to the chip as the core, continuously consolidate the integrated solution of "end-edge-carrier-cloud-application", and continue to provide high-reliability and high-performance products and services for civil aviation, offshore ships, petroleum and petro chemical, wind power generation, industrial intelligence, rail transit, health care and other fields.
Just as at yesterday's final scene, when the foreign judge asked about the strategic vision of FATRI, Dr. Bill Nie said: The goal of FATRI is to become China's TI, and we have the same vision as TI: to make the world smarter and better.
