B&C Chemical, whose early backers include China’s Huawei Technologies, secured the new financing from two lead investors, namely Shanghai-based private equity (PE) firm Zhongping Capital and Guokai Technology Venture Investment, a subsidiary of state-owned China Development Bank Capital, said the firm in its latest statement. B&C Chemical said that the investment will speed up its R&D of self-developed photoresist technologies and expand its production capacity, as the firm looks to transform into a refined chemical platform. A group of domestic investment companies participated in the round, such as semiconductor-focused New Hope Capital, hard tech investment firm V Fund, and early-stage venture capital (VC) firm Qingsong Fund. The deal also attracted China’s state investors, including Suzhou International Development Venture Capital and Shandong Railway Development Fund. Founded in 2010, B&C Chemical came under the spotlight of the PE-VC circle in August 2021 when the firm completed a 300-million-yuan ($43.5 million) investment from Hubble Technology Investment. Hubble was launched in 2019 by Chinese technology giant Huawei to step up its investments in companies that are racing to build China’s semiconductor supply chain. Following the investment from Hubble, the firm raised two investments in 2022 from investors including Prosperity Investment, Xin Ding Capital, Ruixin Capital, and New Hope Capital. Earlier this year, it raised what it refers to as “tens of millions of Chinese yuan” from Acer Capital, a Shenzhen-based PE focusing on hard technologies like semiconductors and material science. In July 2022, B&C Chemical entered into an agreement with its shareholder HMT Xiamen New Technical Materials, a domestic auto parts and textile fabrics manufacturer, to set up a joint venture (JV) for the construction of a plant capable of producing 8,000 tonnes of mid-to-high-end photoresists per year. The duo expected to complete the plant construction in 18 months and targeted to put it into operation around 2023-2024, the publicly-listed HMT Xiamen New Technical Materials disclosed in a stock exchange filing. The plant’s annual output value is estimated at more than 2 billion yuan ($289.7 million).

Seniton Technologyorporation is a company that received a SBIR Phase I grant for a project entitled: Developing an Ultra Energy Efficient Sensor Node Using RFID Technology. Their research project proposes to develop an ultra-energy efficient wireless sensor node using RFID technology. By providing ultra energy efficiency and hence extended network life time, the proposed solution can significantly reduce recurring maintenance cost due to replacing/recharging batteries and interruption of normal operation for networks with long deployment lifetime. The outcome of the proposed tasks is a prototype of a wireless sensor platform that will provide ultra-energy efficiency, at least 5-10 times improvement as compared to existing solutions. The approach is to uniquely combine wireless sensor platform with radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. In contrast to conventional designs where synchronized, periodic sleep/wakeup of sensor nodes are used as the dominant strategy for energy conservation, we employ an innovative asynchronous communication architecture, where sensor nodes are allowed to independently transmit without requiring any synchronization. The approach is fundamentally different from existing design paradigms; the innovative asynchronous communication architecture allows a sensor node to directly write data into a special, reactive module residing on the receiving node while its main platform is asleep. In this way, each individual sensor can schedule its own transmission without demanding any network-wide or local synchronization, thus resulting in a store-and-forward, asynchronous communication pattern in the network. Owing to the low duty cycle of a sensor node, the proposed asynchronous architecture will liberate the network from collisions and idle listening by fully exploiting time as one dimension of resource. The result is a design achieving order of magnitude improvement in energy efficiency. The extension of a wireless sensor network's life time will have significant commercial potential in saving recurring maintenance cost due to replacing/recharging batteries and disruption of normal operation for a technology with exploding market. Moreover, the technology can enable a plethora of applications, infeasible under existing designs, which demand extremely large scale sensor networks and ultra energy efficiency for long term operation. These include habitat, oceanic and planetary monitoring and surveillance of infrastructures. Furthermore, this integrative, and cutting edge project demands a systematic and synergistic approach that combines wireless networking, embedded system design, and lower power radio, and should also promote the fusion of knowledge in various domains by focusing on a mutual and challenging objective.
