“Our technical substrates form the basis of the high-performance and high-reliability semiconductor production required by the electronics industry,” says Dr. Bernard Aspar, SOITec`s COO. “With our production facilities in both France and Singapore, we have implemented the largest capacity in the world with the most modern technical substrates to meet the requirements of this rapidly growing 5G market. We are very pleased to be able to continue our partnership with GLOBALFOUNDRIES through this multi-year agreement. The main driver of this wafer delivery agreement is the growth of GF`s most advanced RF-SOI solution, 8SW RF SOI. The leading RF-Front-End (EMF) platform, with first-class switches and silent amplifiers, is optimized 8SW RF-SOI to deliver the differentiated combination of performance, energy efficiency and digital integration demanded by designers and suppliers of 4G-LTE and Sub-6-GHz-5G smartphones. This new platform uses the most advanced RF-SOI substrates developed by Soitec. AMD said on Tuesday it had changed its wafer delivery agreement with GlobalFoundries. Under the new agreement, the two companies have agreed on the prices and quantities of wafers that AMD will buy from the U.S. smelter by at least 2021. The seventh wafer change between the two parties marks the latest change in the way the two companies do business with each other amid changing business strategies on both sides. But it won`t be the last time either; While the latest change sets the purchasing targets for 2021, the entire CES itself will continue until March 1, 2024.
Santa Clara, California, and Bernin (Grenoble), France, 05.11.2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GLOBALFOUNDRIES® (GF®, world leader in specialty smelters, and Soitec, a global manufacturer of innovative semiconductors, today announced a multi-year supply contract for 300mm of high-frequency silicon insulator (RF-WA.
