Chinese fabless semiconductor company Phytium won the bidding for secondary equipment of 1000 kV substation in Wuhan recently and has its CPUs adopted in the secondary equipment, a first-time breakthrough.
As an important part of the power infrastructure, the UHV substation is essential to the safety of the Chinese national grid.
The safety protection equipment for UHV substations based on Phytium(飞腾)'s CPU has been tested for grid connection and has passed other specialized tests. It will push more domestically made chips in power grid applications.
According to media reports, there are 25 categories of secondary equipment and communication equipment newly built in Wuhan UHV substations. They include ten types of protection equipment, 12 types of automation, DC power supply and auxiliary equipment, and three types of communication equipment. Among them, 64% of the equipment used Phytium’s CPUs for the first time.
As a leading CPU company in China, Phytium, headquartered in Tianjin, has developed its ability to provide comprehensive solutions for new power systems with a high level of safety. It integrates the security mechanism into the entire CPU product architecture to ensure the information security of power companies in key links such as power generation, transmission, transformation, and power consumption.
Phytium claims that the company can provide power companies with core computing power support for various types of equipment from end to cloud and help power companies build new power systems that are low-carbon, safe, controllable, green, and efficient.
