GlobalFoundries Technology Solutions Enable a More Sustainable, Efficient, and Healthier World
GlobalFoundries manufactures feature-rich chips that are pervasive in our lives and vital to the innovations that are leading to a more sustainable and healthier future.
We make chips that matter
Our focus is on the feature-rich semiconductors that are pervasive in everyday life. You’re likely never more than a few feet away from a chip manufactured by GlobalFoundries.
Technology continues to accelerate at an unprecedented rate, making semiconductor chips a vital global resource. Integral to the value GlobalFoundries brings to our customers is a secure, reliable supply of chips that are powerful, feature-rich, and energy efficient.
The high performance and low energy requirements of our semiconductor platforms are enabling our customers to both create new generations of technologies that are more energy-efficient than ever before, and to innovate bold new technologies that are making the world safer, healthier, and more sustainable.
GlobalFoundries technologies, services and manufacturing scale give customers the power to shape their market. Within each of the five high-growth markets we target, our semiconductor solutions are accelerating innovation and leading to a positive impact on humanity.
Smart Mobile Devices
Our technology helps people stay connected to daily life. Nearly every wireless call, text, email, social media post, and streaming video passes through chips manufactured by GlobalFoundries. Our leading RF solutions were vital to making possible widespread telework and remote education. GlobalFoundries chips continue to play a leading role in unlocking the power of 4G and 5G networks – as well as future 6G technology –
while boosting the power efficiency of smartphones to get more use between charges.
Our semiconductor technology enables our automotive customers to produce vehicles that are safer and more efficient than ever before. From the advanced radars required for assisted driving and autonomous vehicles, to connectivity, to boosting the range and efficiency of hybrid and electric vehicles, our chips are helping shape a greener tomorrow.
This year, GlobalFoundries and leading auto supplier Bosch announced a partnership to develop and manufacture next-generation auto radar technology to help drivers stay safe by keeping a vehicle in the correct lane, warning of collisions, initiating emergency braking, assisting with parking, and more safety features.

Computing and AI
With their incredible performance and ultra-low power requirements, GlobalFoundries chips are directly addressing the known “power bottleneck” hampering the explosive growth of AI, or artificial intelligence. Our AI accelerator solutions for both Cloud AI and Edge AI are enabling customers to meet the power efficiency targets they need to get their technology to market faster.
Communications Infrastructure and Datacenter
GlobalFoundries is the industry leader in next-generation silicon photonics technology, which uses light rather than electric signals to carry information. Enabling faster connections and higher capacity, our silicon photonics chips are positioned to play a critical role in significantly reducing the currently unsustainable growth of electricity required to power data centers around the world. We are committed to “flattening the energy curve” and getting data centers on the path to sustainability.
Internet of Things
From smart speakers and home appliances to wearable health monitors and immersive virtual reality headsets, the demand for – and reliance on – smarter, feature-rich connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices continues to grow. Our high-performance, ultra-low power chips are enabling customers to develop and bring to market increasingly complex IoT devices that are more energy efficient and can run longer between charging.
GlobalFoundries is partnering with Movano Inc. on the sensing technology at the heart of Movano’s wearable, non-invasive continuous glucose monitor for individuals who want to measure their blood sugar. The sensor is built on GlobalFoundries 22FDX platform, which Movano CEO Michael Leabman said was “critical for ensuring that the performance and power efficiency of our device is second to none.” Read more
