Samsung plans to invest $280 million in a Japanese plant that packages chips


An advanced chip packaging research center in Japan is set to be funded by a proposed investment of around 40 billion yen, which is around $280 dollars over a period of five years, by Samsung Electronics, a prominent South Korean technology corporation. In order to strengthen its relationship with Japanese producers of chip-making supplies and equipment, Samsung was considering building a packaging plant in Kanagawa prefecture, where it now maintains a research and development unit. With China’s technical might becoming more formidable, the US is pushing allies to corporate, and Samsung’s investment comes as tension between Japan and South Korea is beginning to decline.

Enhancing its sophisticated chip packaging section was the first thing the chipmaker did last year. A research and development facility for Samsung is already located there. In order to revitalize the regional chip development and manufacturing ecosystem, the Industry Ministry of Japan has said that it will provide subsidies of up to JPY 20 billion ($140 million). With the goal of enhancing total chip performance, companies are vying to create sophisticated packaging techniques that combine components in a single package. The semiconductor manufacturer started growing its advanced chip packaging division last year. To improve chip performance overall, businesses are vying to develop novel packaging strategies that integrate parts into a single package.

Based on Yokohama’s statement, Samsung will be able to work with packaging-related businesses there and strengthen its leadership in semiconductors thanks to the Japanese plant. To stay ahead of the competition in technology, Samsung began advancing its semiconductor packaging techniques last year. Samsung packed many components onto a single chip using chip packaging to create a more compact chip with increased power efficiency.

A multinational industrial organization with its headquarters located in Suwon, South Korea, is called the Samsung Group. The Samsung chaebol, comprising several connected businesses, most of which are merged under the Samsung brand, holds the position of being the largest in South Korea. In terms of global brand value as of 2020, Samsung ranks ninth.
