GLOBALFOUNDRIES, the world's first full-service semiconductor foundry with a truly global manufacturing and technology footprint, is executing its Vision to reshape the semiconductor industry through collaboration and innovation.
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 based in Silicon Valley with manufacturing operations in Dresden, Germany; Malta, New York, and Singapore. These sites are supported by a global network of R&D, design enablement, and customer support operations in Singapore, China, Taiwan, Japan, the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
With some 13,000 employees and more than 160 customers around the world, GLOBALFOUNDRIES has quickly differentiated itself through collaboration, both with technology partners and customers, to develop and produce the semiconductors that are changing the ways we live, work and play.
