GLOBALFOUNDRIES Extends FinFET Offering with New Features to Enable Tomorrow's Intelligent Systems

Feature-rich semiconductor platform delivers competitive performance and scalability for next-generation compute applications

Santa Clara, Calif., September 25, 2018 – As part of the company's new focus on intensifying investment in differentiation, GLOBALFOUNDRIES announced today at its annual Global Technology Conference (GTC), plans to introduce a full set of new technology features to its 14/12nm FinFET offering. The features are designed to deliver better scalability and performance for applications in high-growth markets such as hyperscale datacenters and autonomous vehicles.

In today's data-intensive world, there is an insatiable demand for high-performance chips to process and analyze the surge of information produced by connected devices. GF's FinFET offering is an ideal platform for designing high-performance, power-efficient system-on-chips (SoCs) for the most demanding compute applications. The new platform features will improve power, performance and scalability by delivering transistor enhancements optimized for ultra-high performance and enhanced RF connectivity, as well as new high-speed, high-density memories for emerging enterprise and cloud security needs.

"We are committed to enhancing our differentiated offerings to help clients get more value out of their investments in each technology generation," said Dr. Bami Bastani, senior vice president of business units at GF. "By introducing these new features to our FinFET offering we are delivering powerful technology enhancements that will enable clients to extend performance and create innovative products for the next generation of intelligent systems."


GF's 14/12nm FinFET platform provides advanced performance and power with significant cost advantages. The feature-rich enhancements being added to the platform include:

The company's 14LPP technology can provide up to 55 percent higher device performance and 60 percent lower total power compared to 28nm technologies, while its 12LP technology provides as much as a 15 percent improvement in circuit density and more than a 10 percent improvement in performance over 16/14nm FinFET solutions on the market today. GF's leading-edge FinFET platform has been in high-volume production since early 2016, and is Automotive Grade 2 ready.
