Globalfoundries signs SOI wafer supply deal with Taiwan
Globalfoundries has agreed to develop a long-term supply deal with GlobalWafers Co. Ltd. (Hsinchu, Taiwan) for 300mm-diameter silicon-on-insulator (SOI) wafers.

GWC has supplied 200mm SOI wafers to Globalfoundries for many years. Now the two companies will add the supply of 300mm SOI wafers for use in RFSOI circuits for use in mobile communications and 5G applications.

"Mobile, wireless, and 5G represent a significant opportunity for Globalfoundries, and our vital RF technology is featured in more than 85 percent of smartphones on the market today," said Bami Bastani, senior vice president for mobile and wireless infrastructure at Globalfoundries.

GlobalWafers is one of the three largest silicon wafer manufacturers in the world. It's product applications extend through power management, automotive, IoT, memory, sensors and MEMS. GlobalWafers operates out of 15 facilities in Taiwan, Japan, USA, Korea, Italy, Denmark, Malaysia, and China.
