Aerospace and Defense

Semiconductor solutions for aerospace and defense systems must address mission-critical availability, performance, processing, and security requirements while balancing seemingly opposing demands for size, weight, and power (SWaP) reduction. At the same time, they must operate reliably, in potentially extreme conditions, to ensure that crucial safety and security functions remain uncompromised.

To bring these differentiated solutions quickly from concept to reality, companies in the A&D industry need advanced semiconductor technologies, end-to-end services, and a partner they can rely on.

Market Overview


The Differentiator

As a market leader in providing Trusted semiconductors for more than a decade, GF knows what it takes to develop and manufacture solutions requiring the highest levels of security, whether for acoustics, avionics, electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) imaging, navigation, radar or secure communications/computing solutions. GF’s comprehensive portfolio of established and leading-edge technologies, expert support, and advanced packaging options are designed to support the complex and varied needs of A&D industry leaders.


Technology You Can Build On

More than ever, the A&D industry must rapidly bring advanced technology to bear to solve its toughest challenges. GF’s broad portfolio includes both advanced CMOS process technology nodes, such as 12 nm, along with differentiated technologies like silicon germanium (SiGe), fully-depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD-SOI), and a full suite of RF and mmWave-capable solutions.

GF is the second largest foundry in the world and the only US-based pure-play foundry. You can put our manufacturing scale and commitment to execution excellence to work for you to help get your designs to market efficiently and quickly.
