Nuvoton Technology Holds Investor Conference for the Second half of 2020
Nuvoton Technology Corporation (TSE: 4919) held a virtual investor conference today (Feb 19th) to announce 2H’20 operating results and 2021 outlook. The consolidated revenue in 2020 was around NT$ 20.668 billion, net income after tax in 2020 was around NT$533 million and earnings per share after tax was NT$ 1.81.
Nuvoton’s main products have achieved solid results in the target areas in 2H’20. We launched the first 32-bit microcontroller based on Arm® Cortex®-M0 CPU core and qualified by AEC-Q100 grade 2 - NUC131U for industrial control applications. We also released a new breed of smart amp solutions, NAU83G10 and NAU83G20, which are a highly efficient Class D amplifier devices with integrated Klippel Controlled Sound technology (KCS) on Tensilica HiFi audio DSP (“Digital Soundfield Processor”) for smart home requirement. Besides, Nuvoton’s 32-bit security controller chip with on-chip ROM and key storage as the root of trust, NCT6692D, passes Cryptographic Algorithm Validation Program (“Cryptographic Algorithm Validation Program”) by Computer Security Resource Center, which is under National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). For the foundry service, the demand was mainly contributed from power management IC businesses.
With regard to the new product sectors, Nuvoton continuously develops high processing power MCU/MPU for the industrial control, IoT gateway, edge devices, as well as new high power stereo smart amp solution. We are also developing Super I/O and EC (Embedded Controller) for Intel and AMD new platforms. In respect of the foundry services, we constantly develop new generation BCD process and expand our customer base of the Half bridge HVIC process to enhance our competitiveness to meet diversified needs of the power IC market.
Nuvoton completed the acquisition of Panasonic Semiconductor Solutions., Co. Ltd. (PSCS) on September 1st ,2020. This expanded Nuvoton’s semiconductor-related products and solutions, including 2D and 3D TOF (“Time of Fly”) image sensing technology and components, high-performance MCU with CCC EAL6+ security certification, HDMI IC, battery monitoring ICs, CSP (“Chip Scale Package”) MOSFET and so on, which can be broadly applied to the area of industrial control, automotive, medical and consumer products. Therefore, it is expected that the diversified product mix can increase Nuvoton's influence on the global semiconductor industry.
