BARCELONA/TAIPEI -- For Shenzhen Huiding Technology, also known as Goodix, a leading provider of the chips that underpin fingerprint technology in smartphones, being a Chinese company is a blessing.

Goodix might not yet be a household name, but the up and coming company that is listed in Shanghai became China's No.1 chip design company by market capitalization less than a month after it went public last October. Its shares have advanced almost 250% in the last six months to close at 97.3 yuan ($14.1) on Friday.
