SK continues to invest large sums in the development of computer chips

SK hynix is stepping up its commitment to the semiconductor business to meet the current high global demand of computer chips. As the world’s second largest manufacturer of DRAM memory, the company has signed a $4.3 billion purchase agreement with Dutch machine manufacturer ASML Holding. SK hynix will purchase ASML’s EUV scanners for semiconductor production over a five-year period and integrate them into their production. This step for the expansion of the production numbers at SK hynix takes place in a period which is called “Super Cycle” by experts. During a Super Cycle, the demand of computer chips increases rapidly. By purchasing the advanced machines, the chipmaker can ensure mass production of next-generation chips. Payment for the machines is made in installments over a five-year period.


An EUV beam has a wavelength 14 times smaller than the currently used ArF laser. EUV and ArF are used to engrave transistors on silicon wafers. So far, only Samsung’s TSMC uses this novel technology. Another financial burden SK hynix is facing is the acquisition of Intel’s flash memory business. The first installment of $7 billion must be paid by the end of this year, with the remaining amount due by 2025. So far, it is not known how much SK hynix’s exact investment in the EUV machines will be.However, industry insiders expect at least a three-digit million sum. SK hynix also announced that it would commission a total of up to three EUV equipment manufacturers.The cost for a single plant is approximately 175 million US dollars. The EUV production facility will be integrated into the recently unveiled M16 business plan, which aims to produce next-generation DRAM memory. Some experts expect 20 percent growth in flash memory and 17 percent in DRAM this year. The high demand for smartphones and the construction or expansion of data centers are the reason for this positive development.

South Korea is considered one of the most important and innovative industrial nations in the world. Many products that are imported to South Korea have to be tested and certified in advance.
