Samsung to Expand to CIS Production Capacity

BusinessKorea: Samsung says that DRAM production line can be easily converted into an image sensor line because their processes are 80% identical. The company is preparing a detailed plan to convert part of its production lines for DRAMs in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi Province to CIS lines. The newspaper's sources say that mass production of image sensors at the converted lines can begin within this year after new equipment is installed, tested and stabilized. They claim that Samsung will spend at least one trillion won on this conversion project, although it requires less money than investment in fresh production facilities.

In 2018, the company converted part of its DRAM line 11, which is based on 300-mm (12-inch) wafers, to image sensor production line S4.

  1. Why not create a DRAM version of the GN1 (and other quad pixel sensors), with upto 60fps at full res (instead of the present 24), for superb HDR.
