Mask Shop Quality

GLOBALFOUNDRIES has an active and stringent quality program with the mask shops to ensure quality mask delivery. Vigilant in-house mask checks are conducted regularly to enable immediate detection of mask defects, such as particles, scratches, ESD and pellicle frame, to ensure each mask has the lowest defect rates possible.

Data Handling and Security

GLOBALFOUNDRIES is committed to protect and ensure the security of customers' Intellectual Property (IP) throughout the tapeout services. The networking infrastructure is developed to protect operations of OPC, Dummy Pattern and Boolean Operation.

Job Deck Viewing

The customers can conduct job deck review at their convenience through the GLOBALFOUNDRIES remote system with full support from the GLOBALFOUNDRIES tapeout team.

Mask Status Tracking

GLOBALFOUNDRIES has developed a mask work-in-progress (WIP) tracking system with our vendors so that each layer can be tracked by the customer through the mask status tracking system. Customers are now able to view the status of their masks any time by logging into GLOBALFOUNDRIES' FoundryView.
