Samsung plans research center in Technology Square
A subsidiary of a South Korean technology company plans to open a facility in Atlanta that will develop next-generation radio frequency integrated circuit technology.


Samsung Electro-Mechanics Co.'s (SEM) design center will be the company's principal North American research location. The new design center will be at the Georgia Electronic Design Center (GEDC) in Georgia Tech's Technology Square campus in Midtown. As it expands over the next few years, the company plans to extend its cooperation with Georgia Tech and Atlanta to include packaging technology.

Chang-Ho Lee, formerly with GEDC, will lead the new design center.

Samsung officials cited the opportunity to collaborate with Georgia Tech researchers and support from the GEDC as their primary reason for choosing Atlanta for the new design center. Samsung has had a successful research partnership with Georgia Tech for almost a decade.

"The opening of this RFIC Design Center is just the starting point with Georgia Tech and the state of Georgia and it will expand our ability to play an even greater role in bringing high function, high quality and low cost products to the world marketplace," said Dr. Byeongcheon Koh, chief technical officer of SEM. "Locating in Atlanta and partnering with Georgia Tech assures us of access to both the best faculty and student researchers."

SEM is a subsidiary of Samsung Corp.
