The Korean electronic firm ‘Samsung Electronics’ has just been awarded an efficient grant of up to $6.4 billion by the US government. 

This significant and huge grant aims to help Samsung expand its chip production in Central Texas. The Korean giant has decided to invest approximately $45 billion in constructing and expanding its Texas facilities over the next few years. 

Apart from Samsung, the rest of the tech giants, including TSMCIntel, and Microchip, are receiving incentives from the Department of Commerce. The key reason behind this subsidy is to boost US chip production for critical industries such as defense and autos, as well as avoid dependence on other chipmakers like China and Taiwan. 

The US is planning for its comeback with a bang in chip manufacturing, in which Samsung is playing a key role as the brand is investing a huge amount in US chip production along with the support of the US government. Samsung got this grant under the CHIPS Act. This funding will result in building two new chip factories, a research center, and a packaging facility. 

This collaboration is a good opportunity for both Samsung and the US government to make America a leader again in chip design as well as in advanced manufacturing, research and development, and packaging. The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) praises Samsung and the US government’s CHIPS Act incentives. 

Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo illuminates the importance of this project for raising US technological capabilities and innovation in the semiconductor market.

The Korean electric firm ‘Samsung’ is all set to expand its battery business, as it is promising the dream battery for electric cars. 

The Korean giants are gearing up to add an extra layer to their versatility. Samsung SDI has recently revealed plans to power electric cars with a solid-state battery. Three years from now, in 2027, this battery is to go into lineup production for electric cars, and Samsung speaks of a dream battery. 

Now, the Korean giant is actively working to become the top brand in the global EV battery market. A couple of years ago, back in May 2015, Samsung SDI acquired Magna Steyr Battery Systems gmbH (MSBS), which offered the brand a complete business system for electric vehicle batteries. 

The battery will efficiently lower fire risk as compared to ritual lithium-ion batteries. It packs a punch with an energy density of nearly 450 Wh/kg, potentially leading to longer ranges for electric vehicles. The brand assures that the battery can be charged up to 80% in just nine minutes. 

Lithium-ion batteries from today’s production cars are nearly 200 Wh/kg or lower. Samsung itself, with its recently best battery, is a full 40% down the new solid-state generation. However, there are doubts regarding Samsung’s announcement from experts.

Samsung Electronics is concurrently hiring developers in the U.S. and India regions to energize its graphics processing unit (GPU) technology capabilities. 

The Korean Electronics firm stated that it is pursuing talent in several positions, from GPU design to performance advancement, graphics drivers, and application processor (AP) software development, including GPUs. 

The Korean brand is hiring developers at its R&D centers in Austin (SARC) to support its graphics processing unit technology. They are located in Austin, USA, where Samsung Electronics’ R&D center is located (SARC), San Jose (ACL), and Bengaluru, India (SSIR). The aim behind this decision appears to be to upgrade the overall performance of their application processors (AP) by concentrating on the GPU technology within them. 

A semiconductor industry official stated that “the Exynos portfolio of GPUs equipped with GPUs is expanding not only for high-spec but also for mid-to-low-end smartphone APs and automotive APs,” plus “the importance of GPUs for processing high-volume data is gradually expanding.”

Samsung Electronics has not developed its GPUs yet, although its Semiconductor Business Division (DS) GPU development team has partnered with SARC· ACL· It is a part of SSIR and is currently in charge of optimizing GPUs for smartphone APs. GPUs developed in collaboration with AMD are being applied to mobile applications. A few years ago, in 2022, the first AMD GPU named ‘Xclipse’ was installed in the Exynos 2200 chipset. 

Although issues with heat generation as well as performance limitations were boosted along with the Exynos 2200, Samsung has since stepped up its development to regain the reliability and competitiveness of the Exynos. It is expected that the GPU development team at Samsung could work with AMD on next-generation GPU development and performance optimization.
