“Our new state-of-the-art R&D complex will become a hub for innovation where the best research talent from around the world can come and grow together,” said President Kye Hyun Kyung, who also heads the Device Solutions (DS) Division. “We expect this new beginning will lay the foundation for sustainable growth of our semiconductor business.”
The Giheung campus is located in the south of Seoul, close to the DS Division’s Hwaseong campus where the current GAA 3nm production line is located. The world’s first 64Mb DRAM was born here in 1992, marking the beginning of Samsung’s leadership in the semiconductor industry.
