Facing the complex situation of the internal and external environment, the abundant cash flow of Jianan Technology will lay a solid foundation for its next blockchain and artificial intelligence strategy.
Overweight blockchain and dedicated AI chip design seek business growth
Facing the decline in net revenue for the whole year of 2019, Jianan Technology will reverse the situation through two major growth points, blockchain and dedicated AI chip design.
Zhang Nan Geng, chairman and CEO of Jianan Technology, said: "The company's two core businesses, namely blockchain and dedicated AI chip design, represent the new direction and new growth point of the long-standing industry of integrated circuits. We will pass the chip The continuous improvement of computing power, the continuous optimization of power consumption and cost, the expansion of new product application scenarios, reducing the total cost of ownership, and empowering the industry from the upstream of the industry chain. "
In terms of mining machine chips, Zhang Nan Geng said that in the first quarter of this year, the research and development of new products was not affected by the epidemic, and the research and development work was completed in February. Compared with the previous generation of mass-produced products, this product has reduced the cost and improved the performance and power consumption ratio by about 20-30%, and is in the leading position in the industry. In addition, our products based on TSMC's 5nm technology are also under intense development.
In addition to chips, Jianan Technology has also made improvements to the hardware and software design platform of blockchain computing equipment products. General hardware design can reduce costs, shorten design cycles, and bring convenience to customers' deployment and operation and maintenance. In addition, the company is also advancing the research and development of advanced technologies such as liquid cooling. In terms of software, the company began to provide native support for cloud mining software systems in pre-installed software, which is compatible with its future business development direction.
Global cooperation launches AI products for epidemic situation
In terms of AI business, based on the availability of K210 products, Jianan Technology has established strategic cooperation with domestic head customers, including strategic cooperation with domestic technology and agricultural head companies, providing intelligent solutions for the agricultural field; and a global leader Of soft drink manufacturers cooperated to provide solutions in smart industry; established initial contacts with DJI and Ubisoft to explore the integration of AI and STEAM education.
In terms of AI products, during the outbreak, the face recognition access control system was upgraded so that it can recognize people wearing masks, and can remind employees who do not wear masks. At the same time, it also integrates an intelligent time and attendance system to assist human resource management. Overall, the company's AI products have developed rapidly in areas such as smart door locks, non-inductive access control and attendance, smart energy management, and smart industry.
Since 2020, the AI overseas market has also made considerable progress. At present, Jianan Technology ’s AI chips and modules are widely welcomed by North American customers; in Japan, Kanzhi K210 chip modules already have a good developer community base. The second-generation AI chip product K510, which the company plans to launch this year, has more functions, and its performance is several times that of the first-generation product and adapts to more application scenarios.
