Xinhua writes a university in Shanghai fired the dean of its microelectronics department for faking the development of a series of digital signal processors:
Chen Jin has been removed from his post at Shainhai Jiatong University and is no longer a professor there. In addition, China's Ministry of Science and Technology and the National Development and Reform Commission have pulled their funding for the Hanxin project.
"The Hanxin computer chip series are fake and the state-funded chip research is fraudulent," the Xinhua report said.
The report also noted that the Ministry of Education retracted an honorary title and "remunerations" paid to Chen.
More details over at EE Times. The Hanxin 1 chip was announced in 2003 and hailed as a milestone in China's efforts to develop its own intellectual property.
