Smaller, Faster, Smarter!!

“Smaller, Faster and Smarter” are Barun Electronics’ new values.

In 1998, Barun Electronics was established by experts from global semiconductor companies such as Samsung Electronics, SK Hynix and Intel in the semiconductor industry’s growth period. With the motto, “be a research-oriented and export-oriented enterprise”, Barun Electronics has grown into Korea’s leading semiconductor company whose exports account for more than 80% of its sales with its annual sales in excess of 200 billion won through industry-leading investment in R&D and continuous overseas market development.

Its biggest competitiveness resides in its own R&D organization which is as powerful as large corporations. Unlike many other semiconductor packaging companies which just provide outsourced assembly & test services for Integrated Device Manufacturers(IDM), Barun Electronics develops and sells its own products including memory cards, eMMCs, USBs, SSDs, etc. In particular, it is recognized as a comprehensive packaging house that can cover both memory and non-memory semiconductors through its SiP (system in package) field enclosing various chip elements in a single package and its advanced packaging technologies including bumping, flip chip, etc..

Its business structure is divided into the following two units: memory storage and system. The memory storage business unit supplies various internal and external memories (memory cards, eMMCs, SSDs, etc.), and the system business unit provides customized system IC packaging, IoT modules and SiP. With production of 150 million memory card products annually, it has the largest market share in Korea and the third largest one in the world. In 2017, it also demonstrated its industry-leading technology by introducing the world’s smallest LoRa module SiP, which is smaller than the newspaper type.

To meet the needs for semiconductors that evolve ‘smaller’, ‘faster’ and ‘smarter’ in the huge ICT convergence ecosystem represented by hyperconnected society, big data and convergence, we, Barun Electronics, promise to supply the creative and industry-leading products desired by customers and markets in a timely manner with our rich development experience and differentiated know-how. We will grow into the ‘No. 1 global Korean semiconductor company’ on the basis of differentiation, creative innovation and challenge rather than mere competition.

“We will grow into a global superexcellent company that continues to grow with a creative and competitive spirit!”

Thank you for visiting our website and showing your interest and support.
Barun Electronics has continued technology development and management innovation since its establishment in 1998.
As a result, it has become a global semiconductor company well-known for its various memory products (e.g. memory cards, eMMCs, and SSDs) as well as its advanced semiconductor packaging services across memory and non-memory semiconductors in the global market.

The era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution is represented by hyperconnectivity and superintelligence.
In this era, everything around us will communicate and converge, and digital assets will have the greatest competitive edge. Semiconductors are also rapidly advancing.
Barun Electronics’ new values, “Smaller !!, Faster !!, Smarter !!”, reflect the new paradigm of future semiconductor technology.

The development of technology has always been the root of dynamic economic change, from the Industrial Revolution’s first mechanization to the computer revolution. Furthermore, the cycle of innovation is getting shorter. We Barun Electronics have one belief in our pride that we have continued straight and right growth based on our constant self-reflection and unabated innovation through the growth, recession and re-emergence period of the semiconductor industry. All of our strength comes from our customers’ faith and love.

The era where yesterday’s new knowledge becomes today’s old knowledge needs wisdom beyond intelligence. Please pay attention to Barun Electronics that always stays awake. As a semiconductor company that specializes in technologies beyond semiconductors, we will vigorously make advancements by considering our customers’ voices as our rudder.

We will appreciate your warm support and encouragement. Thank you.
