Based on 8nm process! Samsung completes 5G RF chip technology development

Samsung Electronics recently stated that it has developed the latest RF technology based on 8 nm process. Compared with the 14nm process, Samsung's 8nm RF process can reduce the RF chip area by 35% and increase the power by 35%.

According to the Korean media THE ELEC report, Samsung will also provide 5G RF chips that support multi-channel and multi-antenna integration in the future. Samsung said the chip will support Sub-6GHz and millimeter waves. The new process is expected to win more OEM orders for Samsung.

According to data from market research firm TrendForce, Samsung's foundry business had a global market share of 17% in the first quarter, and it is still far behind TSMC's 55%.

The South Korean company began to provide RF chip foundry services in 2015, initially using 28nm process and 12-inch wafer production, and in 2017 began to provide 14nm production process. Samsung said that since 2017, the company has shipped more than 500 million mobile radio frequency chips.
