In the first half of this year, ZTE was sanctioned by the U.S. Department of Commerce for restarting its operations. It was banned from using its chips and operating systems, resulting in the shutdown of ZTE's business. Although after three months of mediation and rectification, ZTE and the U.S. Department of Commerce reached a settlement and lifted sanctions, ZTE suffered heavy losses, with a net loss of 7.8 billion yuan in the first half. Since the core technology is subject to the U. S. companies, ZTE incident has become a painful lesson for domestic companies, ZTE also said after the increase in chip research and development investment. Recently, Miao Wei, Minister of Industry and Information Technology, visited the ZTE booth. ZTE said that it has developed 5G core system chips with 7Nm and 10nm technology, which are used in 5G terminals.

The People's Post and Telegraph recently reported that Miao Wei, Minister of Industry and Information Technology, visited the China International Information and Communication Exhibition. Miao went to the exhibition areas of China Mobile, China Unicom, the Iron Tower, Huawei, Putian and ZTE. In introducing the ZTE exhibition area, he said, "In ZTE, Miao Wei pays special attention to the progress of research and development of 5G terminals, and is in progress." ZTE has developed 7 nanometer and 10 nanometer, with independent intellectual property rights of the 5G core system chip, the face of praise.

According to the report, ZTE has developed 5G core system chips with 10nm and 7Nm technology, and they are used in 5G terminals. This means that ZTE will probably use its own chips on 5G handsets in the future and will no longer rely entirely on external suppliers.

It is not clear what ZTE said the 5G system chip is, if it is used for terminal equipment, it may be a handset processor, it may also be the baseband of the handset. Considering that ZTE announced in 2014 that ZX297510 LTE multi-mode chip platform passed the quality assurance department test of China Mobile Terminal Corporation, this was rare in that year. Several 28nm baseband, so ZTE's 5G core chip is more likely to be 5G baseband processor, ZTE's handset processor rarely published.

After the lifting of the sanctions, ZTE held a shareholders'meeting. Xu Ziyang, the new CEO of ZTE, said that ZTE should increase its investment in chip research and development, focusing on the research and development of its main equipment chips, such as baseband chips, 5G transmission switching chips, IP chips, and so on. It is a key part of core competitiveness.

ZTE Microelectronics is the third largest chip design company after Huawei Hess and Ziguang Zhanrui, but its revenue of 7.5 billion yuan from 2017 is quite different from that of Heisi's 38.7 billion yuan and Zhanrui's 11 billion yuan.
