RF Mainstream Technologies

Ideal platform for RF and wireless applications

GLOBALFOUNDRIES mainstream platforms from 180nm to 40nm offer mixed-technology solutions on volume production-proven, industry-compatible processes.

GLOBALFOUNDRIES has production-proven design enablement and manufacturing expertise in RF CMOS across multiple technology nodes, initially proven at 0.35μm-0.25μm nodes, and subsequently developed and deployed at the 180nm, 130nm, 65nm, 55nm and 40nm process nodes.

RF CMOS solutions include a wide range of RF and wireless applications in the consumer, networking and mobility markets including:

  • Bluetooth
  • DTV/STB tuner/demodulator SOCs
  • WiFi combo
  • GPS and mobile phone transceivers
  • WiFi & WiMax transceivers

The breadth and depth of design enablement makes the technology accessible to a broad range of applications through enhancements in RF SPICE Models as well as predefined settings for the RF Physical Design Kits.

    GLOBALFOUNDRIES is the world’s first full-service semiconductor foundry with a truly global footprint. Launched in March 2009, the company has quickly achieved scale as the second largest foundry in the world, providing a unique combination of advanced technology and manufacturing to more than 160 customers. With operations in Singapore, Germany and the United States, GLOBALFOUNDRIES is the only foundry that offers the flexibility and security of manufacturing centers spanning three continents. The company’s three 300mm fabs and five 200mm fabs provide the full range of process technologies from mainstream to the leading edge. This global manufacturing footprint is supported by major facilities for research, development and design enablement located near hubs of semiconductor activity in the United States, Europe and Asia. GLOBALFOUNDRIES is owned by the Mubadala Development Company. For more information, visit http://www.globalfoundries.com
    ARMONK, N.Y., and SANTA CLARA, Calif., October 20, 2014: IBM (NYSE: IBM) and GLOBALFOUNDRIES today announced that they have signed a Definitive Agreement under which GLOBALFOUNDRIES plans to acquire IBM's global commercial semiconductor technology business, including intellectual property, world-class technologists and technologies related to IBM Microelectronics, subject to completion of applicable regulatory reviews.
