SOUTH KORERAN SEMICONDUCTOR MANUFACTURES TO MOVE TO MEMORY CHIP PRODUCTION

By CBR Staff Writer

The three major South Korean semiconductor manufacturers have indicated that they plan to move to production of 1M-bit memory chips by the end of this year, deciding that there is still room for more players in the semiconductor export market: Samsung Semiconductors & Telecommunications will complete construction of a 1M production line at one of its plants in October, putting in production capacity of 6m chips per month, and Hyundai is also to start construction of a 1M line within this year, to start volume production in the first half of next year – until now, Hyundai has supplied Texas Instruments OEM to the tune of 3m 256Ks a month.
