Belling will deepen its strategic cooperation with Caohejing in technology services and innovation carnival in the future, said a source with Caohejing.

The purpose is to achieve mutual benefit and win-win results, creating a good Caohejing technology industrial ecosystem by building more high quality industrial parks with special characteristics and excellent technology innovation and entrepreneurship enterprises, the source said.

Since June 2017, Caohejing and Belling has entered a new stage of cooperation by establishing a closer partnership between the Caohejing High-Tech Entrepreneurship Center and Belling Group.

During the 2018 Caohejing Innovation Carnival, senior managers from Belling participated in the opening ceremony of the event, telling a moving story about Belling's development at Caohejing for 30 years.

Six enterprises at the Belling Park took part in various kinds of carnival activities, while the service team of the Entrepreneurship Center went to the Belling Park for training and exchanges.

In 1988, Shanghai Bell Company was married to a State-owned radio factory, forming Shanghai Belling, the first Sino-foreign joint venture in China's IC industry.

The venture was able to introduce, digest and absorb foreign advanced technologies and develop integrated circuit by relying on its own innovation ability.

It made full use of the preferential policies Caohejing enjoyed to speed up its development and succeeded in promoting the revitalization of the microelectronic industry in China and the rapid development of the program-controlled fixed-line telecommunications industry.

That's why Belling is able to occupy a historical position and play a demonstration role in China's IC industry, becoming a landmark enterprise.

A source with Belling said its growth can't be separated from the support from the park authorities.

Driven by Belling, Caohejing formed a complete industrial chain of the electronic information industry from R&D to manufacturing and sales.

Take the microelectronics industry as an example, the source said, Caohejing now has a relatively complete industrial chain ranging from consulting to design, development, manufacturing, testing, packaging, sales and services.

Many chip manufacturers, such as Advanced Semiconductor, Belling Co Ltd and Xinjin Semiconductor, have based themselves at Caohejing together with R&D enterprises and microelectronic production supporting enterprises.

The venture met with many difficulties as it was set up. At that time, it suffered an average monthly loss of 2 million yuan, for it had few profitable products.

In 1990, Lu Dechun, who acted as general manager of the Shanghai Belling Microelectronics Co Ltd, was responsible for the rectification of the enterprise. He adopted the foreign advanced enterprise management system and went all out to do a good job in technology transfer.

After more than a year of effort, the enterprise successfully produced nine kinds of PBX special chips, three of which entered the mass production.

In 1992, Belling produced the first batch of large scale integrated circuit for 1240 program-controlled telephone switch, which passed the quality certification made by Belgium Bell. From then on, Belling began to supply Shanghai Bell with its IC, reducing the cost from $50 down to $10.

Belling created profits of 100 million yuan to 200 million yuan between 1993 and 1995, which was unprecedented in China's semiconductor history

On February 10, 1992, Deng Xiaoping fully affirmed the achievement Belling had made, when he visited the enterprise, saying that opening to the outside world should introduce advanced technology to develop China's industries.
He encouraged the enterprise to open the door wider, giving Belling people great confidence in developing its production.
