Technological Supremacy Chapter 401: Negotiator


Shanghai, Four Seasons Hotel.

The news that Luo Jia will attend the meeting tomorrow spread to the Semiconductor Alliance that night and caused quite a stir.

“It’s finally time for a showdown.” Professor Hawkins said with a smile, “It was still January when we came, and now it’s mid-April, and those Chinese people have been finding various excuses to drag us down.”

Looking out the window, looking over from the forty-sixth floor, the city of Shanghai at night is brightly lit and full of high-rise buildings.


Professor Hawkins sighed and said with emotion: “But in retrospect, it’s not all bad. At least we have seen what the real China looks like. It is unimaginable that they actually built roads and connected electricity to all villages. On the vast prairie of Inner Mongolia, there are still mobile phone signals, and the level of infrastructure in China is far more developed than many developed countries.”

After listening to the professor’s words, everyone was moved with emotion. After watching too many distorted reports by CNN, they suddenly came to the real China and felt like a foreigner who had never seen the world. The tall buildings of the world are dumbfounded.

“There is a boss in our company, nicknamed Lai Ang from India, do you know how he got this nickname?” The representative of Siemens Group joked: “At that time, there were two regional president positions, one was The president of India, and the president of Huaxia, Mr. Lai Ang firmly believed that Huaxia was a poor and backward place, so he resolutely chose to take up the post in India and handed over the Huaxia region to his competitors.”

“Since that day, the tragedy has been doomed. I watched my competitors post photos of me visiting China and enjoying delicious food every day, and then I looked around me, the ground was covered with cow dung and people who stepped on cow dung to defecate everywhere Asan in India, Leon wanted to cry, so later, Leon in India became a famous case in our company, used to ridicule those who have no eyes.”


After hearing this story, everyone laughed. Once upon a time, the employees stationed in China had to offer at least three times the bonus, otherwise no one would be willing to come. Now, the permanent job in China needs to go through fierce competition and selection. Everyone flocks to it.

“I was shocked by my visit to China this time.” Another negotiator said: “Although poverty and backwardness still exist here, which country is not like this? shootings, yet North America remains the only superpower in the world.”

“These are not the crux of the problem. The crux is that East Asians are really smart, and their average IQ is far ahead of other ethnic groups. Moreover, they are not only intelligent, but also very hardworking. Take neon as an example. If it weren’t for Suppressed by North America, resulting in economic stagnation for 30 years, it is uncertain how high it has reached today.”

The words of this representative have caused everyone to think deeply. Japan and South Korea have already reached the top of the world. Assuming that the giant China also rises rapidly, the trouble facing the West is not only an economic crisis, but a racial crisis.

It is unimaginable that if one day the global center shifts from Europe and the United States to East Asia, and white girls are proud to marry East Asians, what a terrible situation it will be.

“I think everyone should still remember that in the 1980s, the neon semiconductor industry was in full swing, and its market share even surpassed that of North America. But so what? Wasn’t it suppressed?”

“On the one hand, we signed the semiconductor agreement and the Plaza Agreement with Neon, forcing the market share of Neon Semiconductor to be no higher than 20%, and the price should not be lower than that of similar Western products. , as a new semiconductor production base, let South Korea compete with Neon, and let East Asians eat their own dogs.”

“After this series of operations, the neon semiconductor industry has finally declined, and South Korea, I’m sorry, Samsung’s shares are actually in our hands. It’s just a North American company wearing a Korean skin.”

“In China today, the scale of the semiconductor industry is far smaller than that of neon in the last century. Even neon has been played to death by us. Why should they compete with us? Just rely on a new lithography machine?”

After hearing what this representative said, everyone laughed. To this day, it is a consensus that the Semiconductor Alliance encircled and suppressed Huaxia, especially after they saw the real Huaxia with their own eyes, they became more determined.

Therefore, Chinese people always complain that the West does not understand the East, and there are too many misunderstandings in it.

But if you think about it carefully, ignorance is not necessarily a bad thing, because you will despise it because you don’t understand it, and once the West sees China clearly, they should be afraid.

On the afternoon of the second day, Hong Tao and Luo Jia came to Pudong from Baoshan together. There are also nameplates in front of individual seats identifying the business they represent.

Intel, AMD, Texas Instruments, IBM, Microsoft, Applied Materials, Apple, Google, Facebook, Colin Technologies, Infineon, STMicroelectronics, ASML, Siemens, Philips, GlobalFoundries, Toshiba, Hitachi , Samsung, Hyundai, Shin-Etsu, TDK, Taiyo Yuden…

In addition, there are representatives of Western academic fields, such as Princeton, Caltech, Massachusetts, Cambridge, Oxford and so on.

Luo Jia glanced at the nameplates in front of these representatives, feeling very exaggerated. It seems that all the semiconductor-related companies in the world have sent representatives to participate in the meeting, and the market value of these giant companies is added together , as many as tens of trillions of dollars.

The lineup on Huaxia’s side is much poorer. Although Ali and Tencent are awesome, in the final analysis, most of the shares are still in the hands of foreigners, earning the money of Chinese people, but eventually they have to be distributed to foreign shareholders. How do you think about it? How much will be a little uncomfortable.

The reason why people praise Huawei and Xingchen Technology so much is because of Miao Zhenggen’s popularity. Only the two of them are truly 100% national enterprises. , with foreign shareholders.

Luo Jia sat, surrounded by Huawei, Spreadtrum, Ziguang, ZTE, Changjiang, Jinhua, SMIC, etc. This is the lineup of Huaxia’s semiconductor industry.

So far, no one knows the real goal of Star Technology and the progress they have made. RISC-V architecture, but in fact, Star Technology’s so-called Plan B is actually just a cover for the crazier Plan C.

Hong Tao stood up and said in a deep voice: “Everyone, I have sent today’s latest agenda to the tablet in front of you. If there is no problem, we will officially start the discussion.”

It is rare for Hong Tao to be so straightforward today. Usually, the fat man surnamed Hong and the big mouth surnamed Yu always gossip about him. They are very annoying.

It seemed that a showdown was really about to take place. Everyone had their own thoughts and stood up to speak out, explaining their positions and demands. Luo Jia listened quietly from the side, her brows gradually furrowed.

“Star Technology Group must immediately restore the supply of photoresist unconditionally, and open the next-generation lithography machine. All semiconductor companies in the world can order and use the next-generation lithography machine, including but not limited to technical support. Follow-up service.” The representative of Intel spoke his request in English.

Hong Tao glanced at Luo Jia, his expression was very helpless, and the meaning was very obvious. In the past few months, Hong Tao has been dealing with these guys, and his life has been really hard.

“If we restore the supply of photoresist and unconditionally sell the next-generation photolithography machine, what kind of return will Intel Group be willing to give?” Hong Tao asked.

The representative of Intel lifted up the golden glasses, “We will authorize you to use the patent library under the X86 architecture.”

Hong Tao touched his chin, “Exchange your X86 patent library authorization with photolithography machine and photoresist? Isn’t that a bit too much? As far as I know, you only occupy one-third of the X86 patent library. Even if we take Until authorization, it is still incomplete.”

“There is no way. If you want to develop your own CPU technology, you must obtain the X86 architecture authorization. You are right. We don’t have the entire X86 architecture. AMD, Texas Instruments, IBM, you still have to go one by one. As for what conditions they offer, it has nothing to do with us.”

“In addition, even if you get the complete X86 architecture license, it is still not enough to develop the semiconductor industry, because you are still short of the instruction set and assembly machine language, even if you get all these three major licenses, it is only enough In addition to software preparation, etching, packaging, and electrical evaluation required for hardware manufacturing, these technologies still need authorization and exchange.”


Representatives of the Semiconductor Alliance laughed one after another, looking very proud, as if they were watching the jokes of the Chinese people. After all, the semiconductor giants spent tens of hundreds of years to create this unrivaled technology patent The moat, even for a research and development company like Xingchen Technology, is not easy to cross.

Hong Tao is still dealing with this group of foreigners, but Yu Chengdong smiled wryly, and said to Luo Jia in a low voice: “Their current strategy is to divide, each company makes separate demands, and wants to break us apart and crush us.” , Play slowly, this kind of negotiation is obviously not sincere, it is estimated that in the end, there will be a final showdown time.”

Is that so?

Luo Jia frowned. His focus has always been on research and development at the headquarters. He had heard Hong Tao say that the negotiation was very difficult, but Luo Jia didn’t know exactly how it was difficult.

Exchanging a lithography machine for an X86 architecture authorization, an energy wave wireless charging technology for an instruction set authorization, and a Karman vortex street power generation for an assembly logic, how could Star Technology agree to such harsh conditions? It will become the Treaty of Shimonoseki in the new century.

Suddenly, the audience was silent, because people noticed that Luo Jia stood up, his face was expressionless, his eyes swept across the audience quickly, and then he said in a deep voice: “Obviously, you have no sincerity to negotiate. We cannot accept the proposed conditions.”

Professor Hawkins stood up. He came to Shanghai on behalf of Princeton University, and he was regarded as the speaker of the academic circle.

For this negotiation, the academic community also has requirements, that is, the Star Journal must publish an English version, and Huaxia cannot continue to challenge Western academic hegemony. Scholars from many countries have already tried to submit Chinese papers to Huaxia. unbearable in academia.

“President Luo misunderstood, I am the computer of Princeton University…”

Professor Hawkins spoke slowly, with a calm look, but unexpectedly, Luo Jia didn’t seem to be interested in him.

“Professor, please shut up.” Luo Jia said with a smile, “Because I haven’t finished my words yet.”


Hong Tao, who was drinking a bottle of Nongfu Spring, sprayed it straight away. Luo Jia was really rude. As the dean of Princeton’s computer science department, Hawkins has a long-standing reputation in the world, but Luo Jia told him to shut up. At this moment, Hawkins His face can be as ugly as it needs to be.

Luo Jia said lightly: “We do want to develop semiconductors, but this does not mean that we have to kneel down and beg someone to allow us to develop semiconductors. Don’t talk about it, the road is facing the sky, at most we will go on each side.”

Speaking of this, Professor Hawkins became even more angry. He stood up again and said loudly: “Do you know what you are talking about? The core technology used by Huaxia’s billions of large and small computing All from the West!”

The eyes suddenly became sharper, and an indistinguishable brilliance flashed across the corner of Luo Jia’s eyes. He snorted coldly and said, “Mr. Professor, why did you stop? Why don’t you continue talking?”

“Because we have adopted Western computer technology, we will always be under your control and control? Is that what you want to express?”

Shrugging his shoulders, Luo Jia said to Hong Tao and Yu Chengdong beside him: “It’s all over, I think it’s better not to waste time, everyone go back and have a rest, wait for the notice.”

Since Xingchen Technology no longer wants to talk about it, it is meaningless for the others to stay. Under the leadership of Luo Jia, the Huaxia side began to withdraw, while the Western representatives watched with cold eyes, as if unilaterally ending the negotiation with Huaxia. don’t care.

When all the Huaxia people were gone, Professor Hawkins raised his eyebrows and let out a cold snort, “Don’t worry, they will come back soon, because Huaxia’s so-called Plan B is simply a joke.”

“They seem to have forgotten that both the RISC-V architecture and the X86 architecture were invented by us in the West.”
