The Japanese government is coordinating a plan to subsidize 20 billion yen, which is about half of the investment amount. Meanwhile, the exact subsidy amount will be finalized at a meeting on investment expansion at the Prime Minister’s Office chaired by Japanese PM Fumio Kishida.

Biden’s govt is awarding Samsung a $6.4 billion subsidy under the US CHIPS Act. As the company gets huge subsidies, it will ramp up its semiconductor production. Samsung will establish an advanced semiconductor fab in Texas, USA, with operations set to commence in 2026.

According to reports, Samsung aims to begin production of second-generation 3nm chips later this year and 2nm next year. In particular, Samsung’s Texas chip fab is scheduled to operate in 2026, and a second one will be completed in 2027 that could focus on 2nm products.

Yesterday, Samsung disclosed its additional semiconductor investment plans in the US. The company has reportedly planned to build state-of-the-art foundries for 2nm process production and advanced packaging facilities to preempt the AI semiconductor market.

Earlier, it was revealed that the US govt pushed Samsung to increase investment in the US by facilitating huge subsidies. As a result, the South Korean tech giant plans to dramatically increase its investment in the country from $17 billion to over $40 billion.

This expansion includes constructing additional foundries and advanced packaging and R&D facilities in Taylor, Texas, alongside the existing foundry in Austin, Texas, which is also slated for expansion and might employ advanced processes.
