According to a Reuters report, Samsung announced Tuesday that it will invest approximately $4 billion at its Austin, Texas chip plant.

Samsung’s goal is to renovate an existing chip producing line and boost production of system chips, widely used in popular smartphones and tablets.

The investment is in addition to nearly $2 billion in spending that Samsung announced in June to build a new logic chip plant in South Korea.

Samsung earlier this year converted two chip lines from memory to logic chip production in order to meet growing demand from mobile gadget customers such as Apple.
