Chip packaging is a part of the chip production process , Specifically, it refers to cutting qualified wafers 、 Welding wire 、 Plastic encapsulation , Then through the installation “ Shell ” Provide physical protection for the chip and make the chip circuit electrically connected with external devices .

“ The chip production process is very complex , Basically, all enterprises work in cooperation , There are enterprises to carry out design links , SMIC and other enterprises are manufacturing links , Sun moonlight and other enterprises do sealing and testing links . among , Chip packaging is not a very technical job .” A chip practitioner told reporters , In his opinion , The high market share of packaging business in Malaysia is due to its low local labor cost .

According to public information ,2019 Malaysia exported a total of 3727 RM100 million ( Reduced contract 5695 Billion element RMB ) Electronic products and related parts , It accounted for nearly half of the country's foreign trade exports in that year 38% Share .

In order to control COVID-19 , Malaysia has long been 6 month 1 The date of “ a feudal state ” Two weeks .

Industry insiders say , This is equivalent to maintaining the status of the production line without shutdown , Almost impossible to produce . Some analysts think , The load reduction of Malaysian chip packaging production line may further aggravate the global crisis “ Core missing ” The status quo of .

“ Core missing ” Has affected car sales

according to the understanding of , Malaysia Muar The factory is mainly Bosch's ESP、VCU、TCU And other products .“8 Late month , These products are basically out of supply .” Xu Daquan estimated that .

As the world's largest auto parts supplier , Bosch's customers mainly include brilliance BMW 、 faw - The public 、 FAW liberation 、 Chang'an Automobile, etc , The supply failure of Bosch chips will also affect the level of automobile manufacturing .

in fact , He Xiaopeng, founder of Xiaopeng automobile, has said :“ It's more bitter to pull out the core and cut off the supply , Raise your glass to drown your sorrows .” Li Bin, chairman of Weilai automobile, also said in the second quarter financial report teleconference recently , The new outbreak in Malaysia has brought uncertainty to the chip supply , It even has an impact on the global automobile supply chain .“ Weilai has made some countermeasures , At present, the impact on Weilai is still under control .” Li bin said .

“ The chip problem was really unexpected , But SAIC has worked hard in the automotive industry for many years , Partners from all sides give us strong support and care at critical times , The group will also do a good job in production and marketing coordination , Fully protect the chip .” SAIC executives told reporters .

For all that , The lack of core has long been reflected in the automobile production end . The latest data of China Automobile Association shows ,7 month , China's automobile output is about 186.3 Thousands of cars , Year-on-year decline in 15.5%.“ Chip shortage from 6 The impact on the domestic auto market began to intensify in June , Therefore, the production and sales of domestic passenger cars have declined year-on-year for three consecutive months .” Chen Shihua, Deputy Secretary General of China Automobile Industry Association, said .

At the end market level , Car sales are also beginning to emerge affected by the shortage of chips .“ Because of the chip problem , Automobile production has indeed been affected .
