Different type of robots developed by the students of different universities from across the China were displayed in Scientific Research Achievements Exhibition which opened in Beijing.
Developement in the field of science and technology could be due to the progress in the fast development of chips, the core of IT technologies, during China s 11th Five-Year Plan that closed on 2010.
Ye Tianchun, the head of Institute of Microelectronics of Chinese Academy of Science said "We ve managed to bring the total development costs for such pivotal equipment as this plasma silicon etching machine from some five to eight million US dollars down to just four million dollars. This is the first time that such high-end integrated circuits manufacturing equipment made in China are ready to be marketed. So, it s a real breakthrough."
