State-owned chipmaker Tsinghua Unigroup Ltd. on Tuesday signed a deal with the Chongqing municipal government to build a memory chip design and manufacturing facility in the southwestern Chinese city.

The facility, which will focus on making DRAM—one of two types of memory chips — will include a factory, a science park and a research and development center. The factory, which will mainly produce 12-inch DRAM, is expected to begin production in 2021, the company said.

The move is part of Unigroup’s ambition to become a world-class semiconductor player. The manufacture of DRAM and NAND — the other major memory chip type — is currently dominated by the likes of South Korea’s Samsung and Hynix, as well as U.S. giant Micron.

As part of the agreement, the headquarters of Unigroup’s new memory chip-focused business group will be set up in Chongqing. The company last month announced the formation of an internal business group for developing DRAM.
