The establishment of the Hon Hai Research Institute is an important step in the Group’s development strategy as it moves one step closer to its “Foxconn 3.0” transformation.
The institute has five research centers. Each center has an average of 40 high technology R&D professionals, all of whom are focused on the research and development of new technologies, the strengthening of Foxconn’s technology and product innovation pipeline, efforts to support the Group’s transformation from "brawn" to "brains", and the enhancement of the competitiveness of Foxconn’s "3+3" strategy.
By utilizing the Group's high-speed computing centers and its edge computing capabilities, the AI Research Center aims to carry out research and development of innovative technologies that will help address people’s needs and improve their quality of life. It will also meet the needs of industrial development.<br>
The Semiconductor Research Center aims to cultivate talent in the manufacturing and design-related industries, and to develop and design forward-looking nanoelectronic components. By improving existing semiconductor technologies, it will also drive the intelligence revolution in related industries such as artificial intelligence and next-generation communications.<br>
The Next-generation Communications Research Center is focused on the development of core technologies for 5G and next-generation networks. It also explores ways to apply the research, combined with insights from intelligence and semiconductor technologies, to three major industries, i.e. electric vehicles, digital health, and robotics, with the end goal of setting new standards within the industries.
The Information Security Research Center aims to cultivate talents to meet the needs of industrial development, as well as innovate and develop new cross-domain applications that could be used in the industry. The aim of the centre is to create a digital technology environment that is universally recognized.<br>
The Quantum Computing Research Center aims to cultivate talents in the industry, and to actively explore prospects in quantum computing application areas. The goal of the centre is to lead the industry as it continues to prepare for the arrival of a new industrial era in quantum technologies that combines quantum technology and information technology.<br>
Developing central technologies with trapped ions and enabling new-generation quantum technology, Trapped-Ion Quantum Computing Laboratory will build a quantum computer with unrivaled computation power through the combination of cross-disciplinary expertise.<br>
