SAN JOSE/TAIPEI/NANJING -- Tucked away in a building in the heart of Silicon Valley is Chinese tech conglomerate Tsinghua Unigroup's R&D lab, where some 50 engineers are working toward a single goal: to develop memory chips that are as competitive as those of Samsung Electronics.

The facility in San Jose, California, is within walking distance of Samsung's U.S. headquarters, as well as those of Cisco and other tech giants.
