Space Race Fuels Sky-High Demand for Specialized Semiconductors, Says Korean Aerospace Expert

In a recent presentation, Lee Woo-jun, a senior researcher at the Korea Aerospace Research Institute, shed light on the stark contrast between the cost of standard commercially available semiconductors and their counterparts designed for space applications. According to his analysis, while a typical 512MB SDRAM memory chip can be purchased for approximately $2.25 to $18.75, a similar specification chip built for space use is priced at an eye-watering $2,250 to $7,500, marking a cost increase of up to 1,000 times.

The considerable price disparity, according to Lee, is attributable to the rigorous testing. . .
