Beijing, July 11, 2022, MUCSE, a pioneer in security and integrated circuit, announced its latest secure chip — PQC 1.0. The PQC 1.0 is believed to be the first commercial post-quantum security chip supporting the recent post-quantum cryptography algorithms selected by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for standardization in PQC solutions.
Releasing the PQC 1.0 security chip is the first step of MUCSE to conform the global trend of switching to quantum-resistant Public Key Infrastructures. MUCSE continuously cooperates with partners and customers to embrace this inevitable transition and to prepare the community against the threat of quantum computers yet to come.
Google said, in 2019, it has achieved the so-called “Quantum Supremacy” with its 54-qubit Platanus, an experimental quantum processor which has completed a calculation in a few minutes that would take a traditional supercomputer thousands of years.
In large-scale quantum computing, Shor’s and Grover’s quantum algorithms put devastating threat to the mathematical foundation of the current asymmetric cryptography algorithms. To confront this upcoming catastrophe of the modern security infrastructures, quantum-resistant cryptography algorithms, which are secure against both quantum and classical computers, need to be developed, implemented and deployed.
December 2016,NIST initiated a competition-like standardization process to solicit, evaluate and select quantum-resistant public-key cryptographic algorithms. After six years, on July 05, 2022, NIST announced the first group of four quantum-resistant cryptographic algorithms to be standardized. After six days, on July 11, 2022, MUCSE announced its first commercial post-quantum cryptography security chip, supporting two winners: CRYSTALS-KYBER for public-key encryption and key-establishment,and CRYSTALS-Dilithium for digital signature.
The PQC 1.0 is fabricated to 28nm technology, with a footprint less than 3 mm² and a power consumption of 150 mW. Compared with mainstream CPUs such as Apple M1 and ARM cortex-a72, the performance of PQC 1.0 could achieve an acceleration of, at maximum, 20 times. The energy efficiency is improved by two orders of magnitude. Together with PQC 1.0, MUCSE released the PQC development kit, providing complete quantum-resistant solutions to their partners and customers.
The successful release of the PQC 1.0 security chip is a milestone for both MUCSE and the industry to counter the threat posed by quantum computer attacks. It also affirms years of dedicated works from the R&D of MUCSE. For the industry, the PQC 1.0 can be used to evaluate the replaceability of post-quantum algorithms in existing industry platforms, and to facilitate the construction of the next-gen public-key systems in real-world applications.
MUCSE has always positioned itself as a pioneer in the forefront of the security field; and a connector bridging the gap between the academic results and industrial solutions. In the past, MUCSE has successfully introduced its two generations of high-performance cryptographic chips to the domestic market of China.
MUCSE (Micro Innovation Integrated Circuit) is the rising leader in IC Design and the global provider of cybersecurity solutions for both high performance servers and embedded systems. Founded in Dec 2018, MUCSE is a Spin-off of the Institute of Microelectronics, Tsinghua University. A character of innovation, perpetual passion, and experienced R&D team, have allowed MUCSE to establish itself as a pioneer and a leader in the field of security solutions. Its two main product lines are security chips and intelligent network controller chips.

Understanding the Roles and Responsibilities of a Sales Coach
A sales coach’s primary responsibility is to guide the sales team toward achieving their goals. They provide training, support, and mentorship to help them develop their skills and improve their performance.
Apart from that, they also have a critical responsibility in monitoring the sales performance, identifying skills gaps, and coming up with strategies to address these gaps. This involves continuous analysis of sales data and feedback from the team.
The role of a sales coach is not restricted to training alone but extends to nurturing and developing a positive sales culture within the organization. They should foster a growth mindset and encourage collaboration and communication among the team members.
Additionally, a sales coach is also responsible for creating a positive and motivational environment that will encourage the sales team to strive for better performance. They help in building self-confidence and resilience in the team, essential traits for success in sales.
Powerful Techniques of Effective Sales Coaching
Effective sales coaching requires a combination of various techniques tailor-made according to the needs and skills of the team. One such powerful technique is providing regular feedback. Feedback should be constructive and actionable, helping the team improve their performance.
Role-playing is another technique that can help reveal areas of strength and weakness. It enables the sales team to practice dealing with different situations and improve their problem-solving skills.
Another powerful technique is leading by example. The sales coach must demonstrate top-tier sales skills for staff to emulate. Their guidance should reflect in their own selling styles and methods.
Lastly, leveraging technology can significantly benefit the coaching process. Utilizing relevant sales coaching tips and tech tools can help sales coach manage their coaching tasks more effectively and efficiently.
Maximizing Sales Team Performance through Coaching
Adequate coaching is the key to maximizing a sales team’s performance. Consistent coaching helps the sales team stay on top of the latest selling techniques and strategies.
Coaching aids in the identification of individual strengths and weaknesses, enabling the sales team to work on their skills strategically. It fosters self-awareness amongst the team members about their performance.
Regular coaching sessions also offer opportunities for addressing any issues or concerns in the team. This leads to the resolution of conflicts and promotes a harmonious work environment.
Besides, coaching personalizes the training process, making it more effective. A sales coach understands the unique needs and challenges of each team member and can provide personalized guidance, thereby helping them improve their weaknesses and leverage their strengths.
Key Tips to Enhance Your Sales Coaching Strategy
