Samsung Electronics Co. has introduced that it’s going to cooperate with Qualcomm Applied sciences Inc to supply 7-nanometre chips for fifth-generation (5G) community service amid rising demand for semiconductors.
The 2 firms will increase their decade-long cooperation into Excessive Extremely Violet (EUV) lithography course of know-how, together with the manufacture of future Qualcomm Snapdragon 5G cellular chipsets utilizing Samsung’s 7-nanometre Low Energy Plus (LPP) EUV course of know-how, mentioned the South Korean tech big.
“We’re happy to proceed to increase our foundry relationship with Qualcomm Applied sciences in 5G applied sciences utilizing our EUV course of know-how,” Charlie Bae, Government Vice President of the Foundry Gross sales and Advertising and marketing Group at Samsung Electronics, mentioned in a press release.
He added that the collaboration is an “necessary milestone” for the agency’s foundry enterprise.
Foundry enterprise refers to creating chip designs for different firms that shouldn’t have a semiconductor fabrication plant.
Utilizing the 7LPP EUV course of know-how, Snapdragon 5G cellular chipsets will provide a smaller chip footprint, giving extra usable area inside upcoming merchandise to help bigger batteries or slimmer designs, it mentioned.
Samsung launched 7LPP EUV, its first semiconductor course of know-how to make use of an EUV lithography resolution, in Could 2017.
