(JW Insights) Sep 12 -- Chinese maker of flexible printed circuit boards (PCBs) Hongxin Electronics Technology Group(厦门弘信电子科技集团) said it will participate in building four artificial intelligence computing hubs, including two in northwestern China which is becoming a strategic location for data centers, reported Yicai Global on September 12.

The company will join hands with a local branch of China Mobile and other partners to invest in a computing hub with a capacity of over 3,000 petaflops in Qingyang in Gansu Province, the Xiamen-based supplier said in a statement recently without disclosing any financial details about the plan.

Moreover, Hongxin and China Telecom, another major wireless carrier, will build another 2,000-petaflop center in the same key city for China's "east-data-west-computing project," designed to balance development of different regions by sending data to the less developed western regions for storage and analysis.

The projects should spur local ecosystem development in Qingyang and provide mall and medium-sized firms in eastern regions with low-cost and high-efficiency services of AI data training and computing power.

The Hongxin-China Mobile partnership will also build another AI computing center in

Changsha, the capital of central China’s Hunan Province, with a capacity of 200 petaflops. Meanwhile, the Hongxin-China Telecom joint venture will join hands to establish a 300-petaflop facility in the southeastern city of Xiamen, according to the announcement, said the Yicai report.
