SAMSUNG Announces Three New Smart Cards

SAMSUNG Electronics Announces World's Highest-density 512KB EEPROM-embedded Smart Card IC



CARTES 2004, Paris, France - November 2, 2004 : Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.,
a leader in advanced semiconductor technology, announced today that it has developed
a high-density 512-kilobyte (KB) EEPROM (Electrically Erasable and Programmable ROM)
-embedded smart card IC (S3CC91H). By doubling the data storage from its recently
announced 256KB EEPROM-embedded smart card IC, Samsung expands the range of

densities that it provides to mobile handset developers from 2KB to 512KB.



The new 512KB EEPROM-embedded smart card IC will be demonstrated in Booth Hall 3
no.3 C 29 at the CARTES 2004 exhibition held at Paris, France from November 2 through 4.

The newly developed smart card IC supports the enhanced user identification features
of Universal Subscriber Identity Module (USIM) and User Identity Module (UIM) cards
from IMT 2000 and 3G mobile handsets.

The new 512KB EEPROM-embedded smart card IC is the industry's first to utilize
0.13㎛ process technology, enabling higher memory density and a smaller chip size.



Samsung's smart card IC is built on a 16bit CalmRISCTM CPU and a crypto-processor
supporting Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) features.

Samsung plans to initiate mass production of the 512KB EEPROM embedded
smart card IC in the second quarter of 2005, available for sales in Europe.










SAMSUNG Electronics to Produce Industry's Highest-density Smart Card IC with Embedded NOR Flash



CARTES 2004, Paris, France - November 2, 2004 : Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.,
a leader in advanced semiconductor technology, announced today that it is preparing
to mass produce a smart card IC with 1-megabyte (MB) of embedded
NOR Flash memory (S3FJ9SK) the highest density available today.



The IC's higher data storage will enable the first widespread use of multimedia message
service (MMS), as well as improved Internet access, increased phone book storage,
more online games and other applications for 3G mobile handsets.



The new 1MB embedded NOR Flash smart card IC will be demonstrated in Booth Hall 3
no.3 C 29 at the CARTES 2004 exhibition held at Paris, France from November 2 through 4.



The embedded1MB NOR Flash memory smart card IC utilizes an ARM-based
32bit SC200 secure core, a 3-DES encryption standard and a crypto processor,
enabling enhanced reliability, faster subscriber identification and more security
for preventing the leakage of information.



Samsung also has an embedded 16Kilobytes (KB) SRAM to enable code designers
to apply diverse programs, while simultaneously attaining significant performance
enhancements. A built-in JAVA accelerator facilitates a JAVA-based platform,
improving the speed up to 8 times.



The high-density embedded NOR Flash memory smart card IC supports operating
voltages from 1.62V to 5.5V. The low power feature fully complies with the power
consumption levels of the GSM standard. Moreover, memory management has been
optimized because data programming and updating processes operate
independently of one another.

With the introduction of this highly efficient smart card IC, Samsung now supports
a full line of embedded NOR Flash memory smart card ICs from 192KB to 1MB.

The S3FJ9SK is available for sales in Europe.









SAMSUNG Electronics Develops Next-Generation
High-Performance SIM Card IC for 3G Mobile Services



CARTES 2004, Paris, France - November 2, 2004 : Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.,
a leader in advanced semiconductor technology, today announced the development
of a high performance Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) card IC. Samsung further
supports card and system designers with its advanced card solution technology
to meet the increasing data content of multimedia features such as camera,
MP3 music files, game, and m-commerce in the next generation mobile handset market.



Samsung's new advanced SIM card IC, S3FJ9CH, incorporates a System-in-Package
(SiP) technology encompassing a 128-Megabyte (MB) NAND flash memory that
covers the data storage needs of next-generation multimedia intensive mobile services.



The 128MB density level is over 120-fold that of conventional embedded memory
space of memory built-in smart card ICs.



Samsung's new SIM card IC supports high-speed MMC and USB2.0 full-speed
interface as well as ISO7816 for enhanced data transmission. The S3FJ9CH also
supports enhanced security features. An ARM-based 32-bit SC200 CPU core,
a JAVA accelerator, triple-DES and AES algorithms, and PKI crypto processor
are built-in to enforce the security measures and stable transmission of personal data.



"The convergence of multiple functions in the mobile handset arena varies from
diverse entertainment features to the reliable transaction of personal information,"
said C. H. Chung, vice president at Samsung Electronics' System LSI division.



"Samsung presents a total smart card IC solution for GSM/GPRS and IMT 2000
user/subscriber identification cards with maximum data storage capacity to
fully support the rapidly evolving 3G mobile industry.”



The new Samsung SIM card IC is now sample available for SIM card system
providers for evaluation. Samsung plans to promote the application of its new SIM card
format for enhanced user friendly services in the future telecommunication environment.

The S3FJ9CH is slated for mass production in the second half of 2005.

The new SIM card IC will be available at the CARTES 2004 exhibition held at Paris,
France from November 2 through 4.
