In the high-end product R&D areas, enterprise SSD storage and storage system software for large-scale computing such as data centers, as well as large-capacity UFS memory chips that comply with the automotive and industry reliability standards will be developed to empower high-performance and high-reliability storage applications. In the memory chip design and R&D areas, focus will be on the NOR flash, SLC NAND flash, memory controller chips, memory peripheral chips, and the like to meet the market demand of miniaturized and precise storage. The high-end storage R&D complex will further enhance Longsys’s independent innovation capability and promote the development and application of storage technology in various fields.
