Globalfoundries on the hunt for new customers

Posted on Wednesday, March 11 2009 @ 16:40:29 CET by

ARS Technica reports Doug Grose, CEO of Globalfoundries is visiting Taiwan to lure companies to the new foundry that arose out of the ashes of AMD's former manufacturing facilities. Grose is reportedly trying to contract companies that are currently using TSMC or UMC for their semiconductor foundry needs.
acting with TSMC or UMC for their semiconductor foundry needs. If true, this would raise questions regarding the future of AMD's relationship with TSMC. That company currently fabricates Radeon processors for Advanced Micro Devices, and while Globalfoundries and AMD are now separate entities, they are separate entities that remain joined at the hip. Globalfoundries will probably take over fabbing ATI Radeon processors at some point, but is not yet believed to have the bulk silicon production in place to do so.

DigiTimes cites the usual "industry sources" in reporting the rumor of Grose's imminent visit to Taiwan and further suggests that Globalfoundries receives (or will receive) preferential treatment from IBM thanks to its membership in that company's foundry alliance.
