"SK hynix CEO Lee Seok-hee expressed his determination to expand into the emerging market for automotive memory chips ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show on Jan. 7. "
SK Group said Jan. 13 that the first combined presentation by its core affiliates -- including SK Innovation, SK Telecom and SK hynix -- showcasing the latest mobility technology at Consumer Electronics Show 2019 was a great success. This year’s CES, held last week in Las Vegas, drew about 180,000 spectators, according to organizers.
"SK hynix, the world’s No. 2 memory chip provider, may ultimately expand into the non-memory semiconductor market by tapping into an emerging market for a variety of system-on-chips for autonomous driving."
" Major memory chip vendors will still further enhance their memory chip portfolios to include magnetoresistive random-access memory (MRAM) chips. Although the NVM technology is not ready for mass production, it is able to deliver 20ns in read and write speeds beating the performance of DRAM. The prospects for the new technology is promising."
" SK hynix on Dec. 19 broke ground for its new semiconductor factory M16 in Icheon, Gyeonggi Province.
The company plans to invest 15 trillion won (US$13.30 million) for constructing the new chip manufacturing site."
