SEOUL/SAN JOSE (Reuters) – Samsung Electronics said on Wednesday that its chip contract manufacturing business plans to harness the AI boom by offering a one-stop shop for clients to get their AI chips made faster by integrating its global No. 1 memory chip, foundry, and chip packaging services.

With clients working with a single channel of communication that directs Samsung’s memory chip, foundry and chip packaging teams at the same time, the time it takes to produce AI chips – usually weeks – have been cut by around 20%, Samsung said.
