Its main services cover chip packaging, testing, and SMT, and its main products include flash memory chips, memory chips, and logic chips.
Since its establishment, Longsys has been focusing on the comprehensive application of semiconductor storage. After spending more than 20 years in R&D, innovation, and market growth for storage products, Longsys has forged its renowned industrial storage brand FORESEE and its international high-end consumer storage brand Lexar, and has gained a significant market influence and popularity in domestic and overseas markets. In the field of memory chip design, Longsys has successfully launched its self-developed SLC NAND flash chip. In the fields of storage, packaging, and testing, Longsys is also capable of design simulation and process development.
By following the development trend of the storage industry, Longsys actively strengthens cooperation with leading enterprises in the global storage industry chain, and promotes the integration and layout of resources in the upstream and downstream of the storage industry chain. After the acquisition, Longsys will build a strategic partnership with PTI based on PTI Suzhou, jointly increase investment in storage packaging and testing technologies, and further enhance Longsys's innovation capability, product quality, and competitiveness in the storage industry. PTI Suzhou will continue to provide outstanding packaging and testing services for existing customers and empower the innovation of the domestic storage industry chain.
Through the acquisition, Longsys will further enhance its packaging and testing capabilities of memory chips, improve the resource layout in the storage industrial chain, and strengthen business cooperation relationship with storage wafer manufacturers. With regard to aspects such as reducing production costs and promptly responding to customer needs, Longsys will work together with PTI Suzhou to enhance its core competitiveness and market influence, realize its strategic company transformation from a storage technology brand to a semiconductor storage brand, improve long-term profitability, and boost shareholder returns.
