Samsung Electronics is showing a strong will to foster its signage and foundry businesses.

Samsung Electronics’ U.K. subsidiary will provide a free remote management solution for customers of its digital signage for six months until October to ensure that no problem is caused by the spread of COVID-19.

With this solution, companies using Samsung's digital signage can monitor and manage remotely their display solutions and update content without having to go to the sites in person.

With this solution, all screen displays can be controlled as if they were managed on the spot, and software can be automatically upgraded to keep signage in their best conditions. In addition, it detects more than 40 hardware errors in the network, diagnoses the problems by finding out the causes even without a service request, and tell users how to solve the problems.

On top of that, Samsung Electronics is further strengthening cooperation with global companies in the foundry sector. It has recently developed a 5 nm process-based system-on-chip (SoC) design tool and AI semiconductor design optimization (DSO ai) solution in cooperation with Synopsys, a global semiconductor electronic design automation (EDA) tool company.

"Development of DSO ai requires more than a month of hard work by several experts, but we only needed just three days," said Park Jae-hong, vice president of design services at the foundry division at Samsung Electronics.

Samsung Electronics held its first Samsung Advanced Foundry Ecosystem (Forum) Forum in 2019 and introduced its partnerships with ARM and Cadence, semiconductor design asset (IP) companies in the U.K., as well as Synopsis.

Due to the nature of the foundry business, cooperation with design specialists is vital to pioneering many future system areas such as smartphones and autonomous vehicles.
