Samsung’s 1.4nm, 2nm Tech to Power the Future of Electronics


Although Samsung supplied 3nm chips, they were not as high-end ASIC processors as one might expect from a bitcoin company. However, the statements came from the Samsung Foundry executive’s side that things will change in the future. Also, a client’s final purchase typically takes three years, as per the CTO of Samsung Foundry, who made this statement during a speech at the Semiconductor Expo 2023 event hosted at COEX in South Korea. Samsung Foundry is now in negotiations with significant companies, so such conversations may come to fruition in the short term.

It is also important to note that the Exynos 2500 and most likely the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 might be produced around late 2024 by employing the second-generation 3nm chip fabrication method that Samsung Foundry is currently working on. Being the first company in the world to introduce Gate All Around (GAA) technology, Samsung faced several criticisms as they failed to get themselves great clients. For its 1.4nm and 2nm processes, there has been gossip surfacing; the firm has grabbed some major chip clients.

Looking back, despite being the first firm in the world to commercially introduce and market a 3nm chip manufacturing technique, Samsung Foundry failed to secure major semiconductor clients such as AMD, Nvidia, and Qualcomm. So the firm should not repeat this any further. Samsung is planning to begin the fabrication process of the 2nm chip by 2025, and for the 1.4nm chip, it may start in 2027.

What’s troubling the South Korean giant?

Samsung Foundry CTO Jeong Ki-tae stated that stability is critical for semiconductor companies since any problems at the foundry might affect end users. Also, he made it clear that semiconductor manufacturers find it difficult to first embrace new technologies. The Chief Technology Officer of Samsung Foundry asserted that Chinese businesses find it comparatively simpler to penetrate the back-end process domain in the chip fabrication industry.

Jeong believes that it is difficult for younger Chinese companies to get into this very competitive and intricate market sector nonetheless, and that in order for their innovations to succeed at scale, they must have a wide client base or a company that can handle both front-end and back-end work. He also clarified that semiconductor manufacturers find it difficult to first embrace new technologies. For a foundry and a chip customer to be successful, Jeong clarified that closely knit business relationships and procedures are essential.

Jeong Ki-tae added,While the GAA process is a technology that will last in the future, it is difficult to find any further improvements in FinFET technology. We are in discussions with large customers for future processes such as 2-nano and 1.4-nano.”
