  • Samsung has revealed a roadmap to expand its chip manufacturing business.
  • Samsung expects to begin making 2nm process mobile chips in 2025.
  • Samsung is looking to catch up to TSMC.
While Samsung is probably best known for its smartphone business, it’s not the company’s main profit driver. That title actually goes to its semiconductor manufacturing business.

On Wednesday, the Korean tech giant revealed a roadmap for expanding its semiconductor manufacturing business, according to CNBC. It was revealed months ago that Samsung wanted to start making 2nm process chips by 2025, but this roadmap provides new details.

The roadmap says the company expects to begin mass production of the 2nm process for mobile applications in 2025. From there, it will expand to high-performance computing in 2026 and to automotive in 2027.
If you’re unfamiliar with the terminology, this nanometer process refers to the size of each individual transistor on a semiconductor chip. The size is important because it means that more transistors can fit on one chip, which allows for more powerful and efficient chips to be created.

For example, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 uses a 4nm process.

ASML Netherlands reported early last year they were victim of business espionage by foreign entities on litographic wafer rech, but assured it was not China (which many people thought because of the launch of Chinese Intel like14nm chips and the US government using their influence to stop exporting wafer machine tech to China).

An article of a Dutch quality newspaper claimed in a indepth reconstruction that the foreign entity who managed to get the litographic tech actually was Samsung and that it was about 2nm chips (the wafers to bake the 2nm cpu's)
