China mulls national CPU architecture spec
China government officials kicked off a program last month that aims to
define a national processor architecture. If the initiative is successful, the
processor could become a requirement for use in any projects seeking government
funding such as purchases of computers or smartphones.
At least five existing processor architectures are up for consideration as the
basis of the standard. The initiative also could be used to define its own
instruction set architecture or extend an existing one.
Officials of China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology hosted the
first meeting of the so-called China National Instruction Set Architecture
initiative in March.
Representatives of about 20 China organizations attended the meeting, including
communications giants Huawei and ZTE as well as a number of academic groups.
The effort is one of several led by China’s leaders in an effort to set its own
standards and thus own intellectual property rather than paying for IP from
foreign companies. China has already set its own standards in everything from
CD/DVD players to surveillance video systems.
