The GlobalFoundries Technical Conference last week was one of the best ones I’ve seen. The theme of the conference was “GlobalFoundries is bringing the collaborative IDM semiconductor design and manufacturing culture to the merchant foundry business!”
“We ramped volume production at the 45/40nm node well ahead of all foundries and we are poised to maintain this leadership at 32/28nm, with plans to extend this to the 22/20nm node.”
Gregg Bartlett, Senior VP of technology and R&D, did one of the most complete technology reviews I have seen, in 28 minutes! I was even afforded time with Gregg after his presentation for follow-up questions (the benefits of being a world famous blogger!).
