Samsung to jump-start Japan R&D, chip production

South Korea’s Samsung Electronics plans to establish a central research and development (R&D) facility and will likely build a semiconductor packaging test line in Japan, initiatives that come against the backdrop of a recent rapid improvement in bilateral ties and the ongoing US-driven “decoupling” of the global tech industry.

According to Japanese and Korean press reports, the world’s top producer of memory chips and second-ranking integrated circuit (IC) foundry plans to unify its R&D effort at its Yokohama Research Institute under the name Device Solution Research Japan (DSRJ). Samsung Electronics previously maintained half a dozen research facilities in Japan.

As reported by Pulse, DSRJ will hire Japanese as well as Korean researchers, an arrangement that should facilitate more interchange with Japanese suppliers and customers.
