SEOUL, June 28 (AJU PRESS) - Samsung Electronics is expected to unveil key strategies to enhance its artificial intelligence chip business during its annual forums next month.

The Korean tech giant said Friday it will hold the Samsung Foundry Forum and the SAFE (Samsung Advanced Foundry Ecosystem) Forum at COEX in southern Seoul on July 9. 

Choi Si-young, president of Samsung's foundry business, will deliver the keynote speech at the Foundry Forum. 

The world’s largest memory chip maker is striving to catch up with rivals Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) and SK hynix in the fast-growing AI chip market.

The Foundry Forum is expected to reveal its AI semiconductor technology strategies, emphasizing a "one-stop service" for AI chip production that integrates foundry, memory and advanced packaging businesses. 

Samsung plans to strengthen this integrated approach by 2027, aiming to simplify customers' supply chains.

Samsung plans to introduce the SF2Z process, applying back-side power delivery network (BSPDN) technology to its 2-nanometer process by 2027.

The company has been mass-producing 3nm chips using gate-all-around (GAA) technology since 2022 and plans to start second-generation 3nm production later this year. 

The Foundry Forum is held every year in the United States, Korea, Japan and Europe to showcase the company's semiconductor process technology roadmap and foundry business competitiveness to customers. 

Earlier this month, Choi announced an initiative to enhance the company’s one-stop service for AI chip production at the forum in San Jose, California.

Choi emphasized the importance of high-performance, low-power semiconductors in the AI era, stating that Samsung will provide optimized solutions through GAA process technology and optical device technology.

Meanwhile, the SAFE Forum will feature discussions on chip and system design technologies necessary for the AI era, with participation from Samsung executives and industry partners.
