For information, the Zheku team was formed by Oppo by hiring many professionals who are experts in the field of chips with the lure of high salaries from a number of companies, such as Qualcomm, Huawei Hisilicon, Unigroup Spreadtrum & RDA.
Oppo’s chip design unit, named Zheku, began operating in 2019. Chip products developed include MariSilicon X, an ISP chip with technology neural processing units (NPU) that improves the quality of photos and videos.
