Samsung Electronics released a new investment plan yesterday. As we have already reported, over the next three years, the South Korean giant intends to allocate more than $ 200 billion for promising areas of activity, including the creation of artificial intelligence systems, biopharmacology, the development and production of semiconductor products and robots.

The source gave some details as to how the indicated amount will be distributed. In particular, according to him, at least $ 43 billion will be invested in the production of single-chip systems. This probably includes $ 17 billion, which will be spent on new semiconductor production in the United States .

In addition, the company is expected to build advanced manufacturing facilities in Pyeongtaek and expand its workforce to improve the 3nm process.

Another investment goal is to maintain a leading position in the memory chip market. In this area, Samsung Electronics plans to start mass production of 14nm DRAM chips in the current half year and invest heavily to start production of DRAM using EUV lithography and NAND flash with at least 200 layers ahead of schedule.
