On November 9th, TSMC founder Zhang Zhongmou was awarded the first ldquo; Li Guoding Award & rdquo;.

Zhang Zhongmou said at the award ceremony that he was very excited and humble to accept the first ldquo; Li Guoding Award & rdquo;, and praised Li Guoding as an enthusiastic, studious and incorruptible official.

If it had not been for Li Guoding's help, TSMC would not have been successfully founded, nor would it be what it is now.

In his award speech, Zhang Zhongmou said that in his autobiography, which has almost been completed, but has not been further made public, he wrote that his acquaintance with Li Guoding has three acts.

The first scene is when Li Guoding became the political commissar of science and technology, that is, from 1976 to 1980, when he had reached the top position under the CEO of Texas Instruments, the world's best semiconductor company, which can be said to be the peak of his career.

Zhang Zhongmou said jokinglyIn retrospect, Li Guoding actually had a plot to invite him to dinner at that time, and his purpose was to bring Zhang Zhongmou to Taiwan.

After that, Li Guoding also invited Patrick E. Haggerty, then chairman of Deyi, to visit Taiwan for two weeks, which made almost all the later government science and technology advisers were invited by foreigners invited by Patrick E. Haggerty.

Zhang Zhongmou stressed that during this period, the protagonists were Li Guoding and Patrick E. Haggerty, but he was also regarded as a key figure at that time. Because through him, he brought Taiwan into contact with Texas Instruments, and Taiwan began to see the global semiconductor industry gradually.

The second act was from 1980 to 1982, when Patrick E. Haggerty died of pancreatic cancer in 1980. At that time, Li Guoding seemed to have an intuition that he should ask Zhang Zhongmou to come to Taiwan. Because Patrick E. Haggerty died of illness, it seems that Zhang Zhongmou's status of bringing Texas Instruments will be lost.

Zhang Zhongmou said that although this logic is not necessarily correct, the conclusion is indeed correct.

Therefore, Li Guoding found the new chairman of Texas Instruments twice and agreed to invite Zhang Zhongmou to visit industrial development in Taiwan.

After that, Zhang Zhongmou, who returned to the United States, wrote an English report to the above officers, which was actually not very flattering about the industrial development of Taiwan at that time.

However, Li Guoding still actively hopes that Zhang Zhongmou will come to Taiwan for development.

Just after the state instruments had gradually gone downhill at that time, Li Guoding proposed to Sun Yunxuan, then premier, to give Zhang Zhongmou a good salary of ldquo; & rdquo; asked him to come to Taiwan.

At this time, Zhang Zhongmou actually began to have ideas, so he later negotiated with Texas Instruments and asked if he could guarantee his job and pay to come to Taiwan, but it was rejected. Moreover, because Zhang Zhongmou had an unexercised stock option worth US $200 million to US $3 million in Texas Instruments at that time, he could only reply to Li Guoding, saying that he could not come to Taiwan.

Zhang Zhongmou said that at that time, it was not known whether Li Guoding really did not understand or pretended not to understand, because a large part of Zhang Zhongmou's salary came from stock options rather than apparent salary.

For this reason, the relationship with Li Guoding was interrupted from 1982 to 1985.

It was not until 1985, when Zhang Zhongmou decided to accept the proposal and came to Taiwan to serve as president of the ITRI, that the third act from 1985 to 1988 began.

Zhang Zhongmou said that Li Guoding's most critical task at that time was to set up a semiconductor enterprise, so he was asked to talk about it three weeks after he became dean of industrial research, and he persuaded Yu Guohua, who succeeded Sun Yunxuan as premier at that time, to ask the government to invest 48% of the equity. It was only after that that TSMC was founded in 1987.

Zhang Zhongmou believes that Li Guoding is not only a warm-hearted and patriotic person, but also a clean and good official.

Moreover, he ended up living in a public house, which proved that he was indeed a clean official.

& ldquo; others I dare not say, but that's what he is, said Zhang Zhongmou, rdquo;, so I would like to pay tribute to Li Guoding again today.

It is worth mentioning that Huang Renxun, founder and CEO of GPU manufacturer NVIDIA, also attended the award ceremony with his wife and delivered a speech.

Huang Jen-hsun stressed that Nvidia is based on TSMC. Therefore, without TSMC, there would be no Nvidia, and Zhang Zhongmou is regarded as the godfather of science and technology in Taiwan.

In his speech, Huang Renxun said that when he first met Zhang Zhongmou, he was very nervous. At that time, he was just a young man in his early 30s. Now the two have known each other for more than 1/4 centuries.

He said:The future of ldquo; semiconductors is our future, which is actually profound and true. Therefore, TSMC is also our future. & rdquo

Huang Renxun stressed that TSMC makes chips for customers, the size is very small, and innovative technology continues to break through the limits of physics, which makes TSMC have a far-reaching impact on Nvidia and support Nvidia's changing needs.

He is one of the longest-serving CEOs and technicians, has worked with many companies and seen excellent companies around the world, but Zhang Zhongmou is the indicator leader.

As for, the super power of TSMC is honesty, which is a kind of corporate culture, and has injected more missionary service.

Huang Renxun recalled that when he first met Zhang Zhongmou, Zhang Zhongmou talked about corporate culture.

He said that the importance of integrity is the foundation of TSMC, and facts have proved that this is not only the most fundamental foundation, but also the most important technological boundary. In this way, the creation of the most advanced technology through TSMC makes the main costs show extraordinary excellence, which makes both TSMC and customers successful.

He further pointed out thatWorking with Zhang Zhongmou is like Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 and Ode to Joy. Without TSMC, the entire world's science and technology industry would not have been possible today, and Zhang Zhongmou is the godfather of science and technology in Taiwan.
