The Samsung Austin R&D Center (SARC) was founded in 2010 to develop high-performance, low-power, complex CPU and System IP (Coherent Interconnect and memory controller) architectures and designs for Samsung’s System LSI division. The San Jose Advanced Computing Lab (ACL) was opened in 2017 and GPU IP (leveraging 5 years initial development from another division) was added to the joint charter. The engineering team has extensive experience and a broad background in the development of advanced CPU & GPU designs and System IP for various market segments. The management team has extensive experience building world-class teams, fostering an outstanding work environment and enabling creativity.
Our mission is to develop the best CPU, GPU and System IP for System LSI products. This requires a highly competitive feature set and excellent overall performance with very low power consumption.
