RF Network

Driven by the accelerated rollout of 5G-ready mobile devices and wireless network hardware, the next leap forward in pervasive connectivity is here. In an era of real-time hyper-connectivity, higher levels of innovation are necessary to support increasingly complex requirements and standards. The RF Network from GlobalFoundries, formerly called the RFwave Partner Program, enables customers to develop differentiated, RF-optimized solutions to take on these challenges and accelerate time to market. RF Network offers leverage to GF customers by providing access to GF’s industry-leading RF platforms and roadmap which include FDX™ RF, RF SOI, SiGe and RF CMOS (both mainstream planar and advanced FinFET offerings). The network also offers expertise in mmWave testing and characterization, RF-centric IP, EDA and design service solutions from GF. Partners of the RF Network enable designers to build innovative products across the growing spectrum of RF applications fueled by 5G rollouts, from AI to IoT.

Bring your innovations to reality with the RF Network.
