About Samsung Semiconductor (SSI):
Based in San Jose, California, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. (SSI) is a multi-billion dollar subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, Ltd. and a world leader in Memory, System LSI and LCD technologies.
SSI provides the widest range of memory, logic, storage devices, LED components and LCD/OLED panels to enhance the user experience in home entertainment, mobile devices, lighting and computing. SSI has advanced R&D labs focused on product design and research in memory, displays, logic, image sensors, and mobile technologies.
Depending on your background and experience, you will be working in one of the following labs:
Memory Solutions Lab develops innovative open system architectures and marketable solutions that transform the performance of memory in SSDs, mobile devices and datacenters. The lab consists of three teams:
Systems Architecture Lab (SAL) -- (part of Samsung’s Memory Business Unit) which is the industry leader in developing DRAM, NAND Flash and SRAM Memory. SAL is tackling a variety of challenges in data center, server and software infrastructure.
Display America Lab develops technologies, algorithms, standards and interfaces for the next generation LED and OLED displays.
Austin R & D Center and San Jose Advanced Computing Lab develop high-performance, low-power, complex CPU and System IP (Coherent Interconnect and memory controller) architectures and designs for Samsung’s System LSI division.
Semiconductor R & D Labs (New Memory Technology Lab, Advanced Logic Lab, Device Lab)undertake advanced research into materials and device technologies for future cutting edge semiconductor wafer processes.
Advanced Systems Lab: develops a variety of world’s first 3D, color, RGBZ sensors; developed ISP and ML algorithms that expend the application scope and improve the performance of above mentioned sensors; and developed high performance, low power and area efficient NPU architecture for next generation product.
SOC Lab: develops cellular modem chipsets and global navigation receivers for a future generation of mobile devices. The lab has expanded its research and development roles into two main fields, wireless communications and multimedia processing. R&D efforts in wireless communications include 5G cellular New Radio (NR) access technologies, RFIC, ASIC, and connectivity (Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/Locations/IoT). R&D efforts for multimedia processing include design and implementation of algorithms for computational photography, computer vision, speech processing, and deep/machine learning.
