Digitimes Research: Korea kicks off semiconductor development projects
Ricky Tu, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Monday 1 September 2014]

Aiming at becoming the world's second largest system IC producer in 2025, Korea has mapped out a seven-point development project to develop related IC products, including core architecture of application processors, power management (PWM) ICs, SoC (system on chip) solutions and integrated software, according to Digitimes Research.

Among the seven points, the development of core AP architecture and PWM ICs is more difficult due to keen international competition, but Korea may optimize the advantage of its six major industries to develop its integrated software and SoC products.

During the period from 2014-2013, Korea aims to develop integrated embedded software, SoC solutions and related platforms for automobile, aviation, robot, shipbuilding, electronics and medicare industries.

Taking the development of driverless car for instance, Korea will first focus on the development of control software for distance, speed and direction discriminants, and then SoCs for sensing, proximity and control algorithm before moving into the development of self-driving platforms and other solutions.

For the development an IP (intellectual property) bank, Korea will facilitate the exchange of semiconductor and software IP products through the Korea IP Exchange center (KIPEX) to help reduce semiconductor and software R&D expenses, while offering a better environment for software and SoC developments.

The Korea government will also push Samsung Electronics to step up its cooperation with small- and medium-size IC design houses at least on four RFIC products.
