Commercial applications of these patents include, among others, network equipment and Samsung’s flagship Galaxy smartphones and wearables.
By enhancing the calibre of its ideas and cultivating a patents mindset among its engineers, SRI-B has set out on a path to become a patent powerhouse in recent years. Many new, young inventors have arisen at SRI-B in recent years.
Nearly 50% of patent applicants at SRI-B today are first-time creators, and 27% have less than five years of experience. The number of yearly patent applications by SRI-B has climbed by 100% over the past four years, and the number of Samsung patents that have been commercialised has increased by four times over the past three years, implying that these advancements will eventually be included in Samsung goods.
