Bright Side of News provides an update about GlobalFoundries' future plans and reports the foundry is going to increase the production capacity of its Fab 7 in Singapore by more than 50 percent. At present, Fab 7 manufactures up to 50,000 wafer starts per month using process nodes from 40nm to 130nm. Once the expansion is completed, the fab is anticipated to churn out 83,000 wafer starts per month.
Earlier today, GlobalFoundries announced that the company will almost double the 300mm capacity in Fab 7 in Singapore, the most advanced semiconductor manufacturing facility in Singapore. Currently, the Fab 7 manufactures up to 50,000 wspm (wafer starts per month) using several process nodes (from 130nm to 40nm). Expansion will go beyond the capacity offered by the Fab 1 in Dresden or New York's Fab 8. According to the press release, the target is set at a bit more than 80,000 wafer starts per month (approximately 83,000 wspm). Once this extension is complete, GlobalFoundries will have 300mm capacity of no less than 220,000 wspm (2.67 million/annum) 300mm wafers and 183,000 200mm wafers (2.19 million/annum). Expansion is scheduled for completion by mid-2014.
