On January 26, Zhicun technology, the global leader of integrated storage and computing chip, announced the completion of a B1 round of financing of 200 million yuan. This round of financing was led by pilot new territories, followed by Paradise Silicon Valley and Ruixin investment. The old shareholders iFLYTEK venture capital, qingkong investment promotion, Puhua capital and Keyu Shengda fund continued to follow, and index capital continued to serve as the exclusive financial adviser. The financing fund is planned to increase investment in technology R & D, product line expansion and chip mass production. The founding team of Zhicun technology is one of the first teams in the world to study the integration of storage and computing. It has the industry-leading technology of integration of storage and computing. Zhicun has a variety of research and development experience in nonvolatile memory technology suitable for in memory computing, and has built a perfect integrated development ecology of memory computing, such as wtin mapper compiler, tool chain, in memory computing circuit design, multi-core computing and so on. In 2019, Zhicun released the world's first all-in-one memory computing chip. Since then, the product performance has been continuously iterated, and the chip energy efficiency ratio has increased by 2 ~ 5 times every year. Wtm2101 chip was officially released in 2021. It adopts embedded flash technology. When processing AI operation, the working power consumption is the lowest 50ua, the power consumption under peak computing power is as low as 5mA, the standby is 1uA, the neural network model parameters can reach 1.8mb, and the AI peak computing power can reach 50gops. Compared with the same power consumption products, the computing power is increased by more than 10 times, which can be applied to many embedded scenes, including intelligent voice, intelligent health, lightweight vision and so on.
