Semiconductor Unit Samsung LSI described how the fourth industrial revolution was approaching

During the Samsung Tech Day 2022 event, the chip development and production unit of the System LSI Business reported on its strategic plans to maximize solutions in a wide range of its products, including chip systems, as well as safety solutions.

The system LSI Business not only develops individual components, but also supplies complex products that offer sets of linked technologies on a single platform, which, according to the head of the Unit, Young In Park, leads the company to the fourth industrial revolution, which involves a total digitization of production and everyday life. The ideological aspect is that modern machines learn to think the same way as humans, which means that they need similar human senses. The Samsung Electronics mission in this section is to increase the productivity of the relevant chips to a level where they are as good as human beings.

First of all, the System LSI Business aims to improve its development in the main areas of processor neuroprocessor modules as well as modems. The unit continues to work on image sensors to ensure that they do not eventually give way to the human eye, and plans to develop sensors that can play the role of all five human senses.

Among the new developments on the Tech Day platform, the company also showed 5G Exynos Modem 5300 modem, the vehicle processor Exynos Auto V920 and the QD OLED DDI driver. Samsung showed recent solutions: 4nm mobile Exynos 2,200 with advanced central, graphic and neural processors, and the ISOCELL HP3 200 megapixel sensor, in which the size of the pixel was reduced by 12% to 0.56 μm, allowing manufacturers to reduce by 20% the surface of the camera module by providing compact dimensions for premium class devices.

Finally, the Korean manufacturer has shown a comprehensive solution for high-security pay cards: it includes a fingerprint scanner, as well as the Security Element and Security Processor modules, which are sufficient to authenticate the legitimate owner.
