Globalfoundries wants to become leader in MEMS by 2015

Posted on Friday, September 03 2010 @ 00:15:05 CEST by

Globalfoundries follows in the footsteps of TSMC, UMC and others, by making a big push into the MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) foundry business. The company will target the accelerometer, gyroscope and RF markets, and will reportedly offer a MEMS-on-CMOS process within its 200mm fabs. First risk production will start in 2011, and the foundry has set the goal to become the leader in MEMS by 2015.
GlobalFoundries' MEMS roots can be traced backed to Singapore's Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing Pte., a foundry vendor that was acquired by Abu Dhabi's Advanced Technology Investment Co. (ATIC) last year. ATIC and Advanced Micro Devices Inc. are the investors in GlobalFoundries.

Now, under the GlobalFoundries umbrella, the foundry company is expanding its efforts in MEMS. ''We want to be the leader in MEMS by 2015,'' said Raj Kumar, senior vice president of the company's 200-mm business unit.
