Samsung hires a former TSMC executive

To boost its leadership in the sophisticated semiconductor manufacturing sector, Samsung is making strategic appointments.

A former TSMC employee named Lin Jun-cheng has been hired as Senior Vice President of Samsung’s Advanced Packaging Team. It is a department inside the company’s Device Solutions division. In accordance with the Korea Herald story, Jun-Cheng’s objective would probably be to promote the development of innovative packaging technology, which will help high-performance chipsets.

Jun-cheng, who spent 19 years working for TSMC. Where TSMC is a competitor of Samsung in the foundry industry. Jun-cheng was a key contributor to the advancement of 3D packaging technology. Prior to joining TSMC, Lin was employed by Micron Technology, a memory semiconductors business based in the United States. He then worked as the Head of Skytech, a Taiwanese manufacturer of semiconductor equipment, before joining Samsung.

Reportedly, the South Korean conglomerate hired Lin at a time when it dedicated enough resources to advancing packaging technology. Since this is a field in which the company is in direct competition with TSMC. It was previously reported that Apple has chosen TSMC for the manufacturing of its upcoming M3 and A17 Bionic chips. Although Samsung has a good track record with 3nm chips. Furthermore, Qualcomm has shifted towards TSMC for the production of its upcoming Snapdragon 7+ Gen 1. Qualcomm is relying on the 4nm process by TSMC instead of Samsung’s Low Power Early 4nm process. Where Samsung has utilized the LPE process for the development of the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 or the 8 Gen 1.

Samsung strengthened its already-dominant position in the industry last year by making two significant strategic hires. Former Apple employee Kim Woo-pyeong was hired to lead the Device Solution division’s Packaging Solution Center. Benny Katibian, a specialist in self-driving chip technology and former vice president of Qualcomm, was chosen to help improve Samsung’s self-driving technology. The tech titan also hired Kwon Jung-hyun, a former Nvidia engineer, to conduct robotics research, as if that weren’t enough.
