GLOBALFOUNDRIES is the world’s first full-service semiconductor foundry with a truly global manufacturing and technology footprint. Launched in March 2009 through a partnership between AMD and the Advanced Technology Investment Company (ATIC), GLOBALFOUNDRIES provides a unique combination of advanced technology, manufacturing excellence and global operations. With the integration of Chartered Semiconductor in January 2010, GLOBALFOUNDRIES significantly expanded its capacity and ability to provide best-in-class foundry services from mainstream to the leading edge. GLOBALFOUNDRIES is headquartered in Silicon Valley with manufacturing operations in Germany, Singapore, and a new leading-edge fab under construction in upstate New York. These sites are supported by a global network of R&D, design enablement, and customer support in Singapore, China, Taiwan, Japan, the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
GLOBALFOUNDRIES Fab 1 in Dresden is the company’s award-winning leading-edge 300mm manufacturing facility. Consistently ranked as best-in-class, Dresden will further scale capacity to enable GLOBALFOUNDRIES customers to rapidly bring their designs into production at high volumes and mature yields.
While ramping towards 60,000 wafer starts per month at full capacity, the Dresden site is already one of the
high-performance fabs within GLOBALFOUNDRIES.
