Globalfoundries says 45nm yields improved, on track to ramp 28nm by 2011

Globalfoundries logoGlobalfoundries is scheduled to break ground for its new facility (Fab 2) at the Luther Forest Technology Campus in New York in July, according to Tom Sonderman, the foundry's vice president of manufacturing systems and technology, speaking at a press event during Computex 2009. The spin-off of AMD's manufacturing division has achieved mature yields for 45nm, and expects to ramp 28nm at Fab 2, Sonderman revealed.

Globalfoundries intends to migrate all production at Fab 1 to 40/45nm by the end of 2009, in order to pave the way for sub-28nm production at Fab 2 on schedule, said Sonderman.

Positioned as a foundry start-up initially focusing on 45nm, Globalfoundries is already seen as a major rival of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), but when asked about the company's outlook, Sonderman only commented that Globalfoundries' goal is to advance its process technology to the sub-45nm class ahead of Intel.

Globalfoundries presented new 32nm and 28nm wafers at the event on June 4. The previous day, AMD announced the successful ramp of new graphics chips on TSMC's 40nm node.
