BusinessKorea: Samsung says that DRAM production line can be easily converted into an image sensor line because their processes are 80% identical. The company is preparing a detailed plan to convert part of its production lines for DRAMs in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi Province to CIS lines. The newspaper's sources say that mass production of image sensors at the converted lines can begin within this year after new equipment is installed, tested and stabilized.
