Globalfoundries inks chip deal with US DoD

February 16, 2021


Globalfoundries has announced a partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to supply 45nm SOI ICs manufactured at GLoFo’s Fab 8 in Malta, New York.

The agreement is made possible by Fab 8’s compliance with U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and highly restrictive Export Control Classification Numbers under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

The supply agreement builds upon the partnership between the DoD and GF to provide chips for defense, aerospace, and other sensitive applications. GF currently supplies the DoD with chips manufactured at GF’s other on-shore facilities, Fab 10 in East Fishkill, New York, and Fab 9 in Burlington, Vermont.
