According to reports, South Korean electronic component manufacturer Zaram has developed an ultra-low power 5G communication semiconductor device that consumes less power than existing chips and meets the standards set by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

The report said that with the technical support of the Korea Evaluation Institute of Industrial Technology (KEIT), the company has commercialized this semiconductor technology.

In addition, industry insiders revealed on Tuesday that although the number of 5G Internet users in South Korea has grown steadily, its plan to fully commercialize its 5G network appears to be delayed. According to data from the Ministry of Science and ICT, as of April, the number of 5G users in South Korea reached 6.34 million.

According to industry insiders, Zaram's new achievements may be a boost to South Korea's 5G industry.
