Industry related personages disclosed that,SamsungSince late August, hydrogen fluoride supplied by Korean enterprises has been used in a production line. Hydrogen fluoride is used for wafer cleaning and so on. Samsung will first use non-Japanese hydrogen fluoride in processes that have little impact on quality.
It is reported that the production line is imported from China and processed by Korean enterprises. However, Samsung did not disclose details such as the name of the company. SK Hynix is also evaluating whether non-Japanese products can be used in production lines.
According to the report, the largest import source of hydrogen fluoride from Korea is China, but if it is limited to the production of ultra-high purity semiconductor products, the Japanese Stella Chemifa and Morita chemical industry have almost nine components. Japanese companies import raw materials from China and export them to Korea after Japanese factories improve their purity.
According to Taiwan's Economic Daily on September 6, Samsung executives said: "In addition to importing from Japan, we also try to use hydrogen fluoride manufactured by domestic suppliers to start the production process... We will continue to diversify procurement sources to prevent supply chains from being affected by political issues.
Reported that semiconductor products are Korean bulk exports, accounting for about 20% of exports. In order to prevent Japan from cutting off the supply of these raw materials and hurting the electronics industry and domestic economy, Korean science and technology enterprises have accelerated the pace of switching to domestic key parts and materials. South Korea put forward its budget last week, raising its R&D budget by 17.3% next year, a record increase, in order to strengthen the competitiveness of the domestic spare parts and materials industry.
In addition, according to Yonhap News Agency, the world's second largest display panel manufacturerLGDisplay companies have begun to use Korean-made etching gases, and SK Hynix is testing to replace Japanese imports with domestic products.
It is reported that Samsung Electronics demonstrated its extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography technology to Japanese manufacturers at the "Samsung Wafer OEM Forum" held in Tokyo, Japan on September 4, 2019, which is the most advanced technology in semiconductor field except memory. Samsung Electronics is the only company in Korea with EUV production system.
