New Samsung Research Center in Japan to study component packaging technology

The emerging thaw in relations between Japan and South Korea is expressed not only in the more frequent meetings of the leaders of these countries, but also in the expansion of cooperation in the technical direction. According to information Nikkei Asian Reviewthe world’s largest memory manufacturer, Samsung Electronics, will open a new research center in Japan by 2025.

Samsung already has a research unit in Japan, but the new center, although located next door in Yokohama, will receive structural independence. It is planned to spend about $222 million on construction, but Korean investors expect to receive subsidies from the Japanese authorities in the amount of about $74 million, thus compensating up to a third of their costs. Samsung’s new R&D center in Japan will host a production line for prototyping products using new technologies.

Japan occupies a leading position in the global market for materials for lithographic production and specialized equipment, so the presence of a dedicated Samsung research center on the territory of this island nation should accelerate the development of new technologies. It is noteworthy that a particular division of Samsung will focus on chip packaging and assembly technologies, rather than manufacturing them per se. In an environment where it is becoming increasingly difficult to scale the density of transistors per unit area of ​​a microcircuit, the technology of laying crystals on a substrate is no less important. Samsung’s new research center is expected to employ several hundred specialists. Rival TSMC also has a research center in Japan, located northeast of the capital.
