RFwave™ Partner Program

RFwave Partner Program

The RFwave™ partner program is an ecosystem of companies who have teamed with GLOBALFOUNDRIES to help customers using GF’s RF technology platforms built on FD- SOI, RF CMOS (bulk and advanced CMOS nodes), RF SOI and SiGe to bring differentiated products to market in less time by simplifying design. The program builds on GF’s 5G vision and enables you to leverage the latest advances from GF and ecosystem partners to develop optimized RF solutions for a range of applications, including automotive radar, IoT across various wireless connectivity and cellular standards, standalone or transceiver integrated 5G front-end modules, mmWave backhaul, satellite broadband and small cell and fixed wireless.

RFwave partners have committed a set of key offerings to the program, including

  • Tools (EDA): Ecosystem support for RF-specific features on GF’s RF technology platforms, built into industry-leading design flows
  • Design elements (IP): Complete libraries that include interfaces and both complex and foundation IP, which enable you to design using pre-validated IP building blocks
  • Resources (design consultation, services): Trained, globally distributed resources to gain easy access to support in developing solutions using GF’s RF technology platforms
