According to media reports, in line with the Korean government’s support plan for the semiconductor industry, Samsung Electronics will invest 30 trillion won to develop non-memory integrated circuits, with the goal of occupying a leading position in the world by 2030.
The Korea Semiconductor Industry Association said that Samsung and the association are working closely on the South Korean government’s semiconductor-led industry model, and Samsung will announce the plan at the end of this month, but the initial measures and plans have been basically determined. This will be the largest industrial support policy since the founding of the Republic of Korea, covering government, industry associations and enterprises.
Samsung Electronics’ upcoming plans include: investing 3 billion won, constructing scientific research strengths, and collaborating with universities to establish semiconductor disciplines, and continue to support wafer foundry. Among them, as the first initiative of Samsung Electronics to develop a non-memory semiconductor program, Samsung will set up an extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUV) factory in Gyeonggi Province, South Korea. As one of the core processes in semiconductor engineering, the market price of each device exceeds 200 billion won. .
In addition, Samsung will also consider the construction of a non-memory semiconductor such as AP and CIS in the Pyeongtaek area of Gyeonggi. However, the details and scale of this investment plan have not yet been finalized and will be disclosed later.
