GlobalFoundries hosts event on secure chip manufacturing


GlobalFoundries and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) hosted an event for the aerospace and defense industry from 18-19 October at GF’s Trusted Foundry Training 2023 in Arlington, Virginia. The invite-only event sought to showcase the critical role of Trusted chip manufacturing for sensitive national defence applications and highlight how essential chips securely manufactured by GF are enabling innovation and provide an efficient path to new technology development across a range of markets.

The 2023 Trusted Foundry Training builds on the recent announcement of the DoD awarding GF a new $3.1 billion, 10-year contract for a supply of securely manufactured, U.S.-made semiconductors for use across a wide range of critical aerospace and defense applications.

Along with presentations from the GF team on the company’s silicon photonics, gallium nitride, silicon germanium and other wide bandgap technologies, the event included discussions around supply chain resiliency and transparency, chips for harsh environments, and the benefits of enhanced chip manufacturing security for companies outside the defense sector.

“As the leading supplier of securely manufactured essential chips for the U.S. aerospace and defense industry, and a longstanding partner to the U.S. Department of Defense, GF is uniquely positioned to convene this group of leaders and decision makers for a wide-ranging discussion on Trusted chip manufacturing,” said Mike Cadigan, chief corporate and government affairs officer at GF, ahead of the event. “Defense contractors will hear straight from the source how GF Trusted manufacturing, our platforms and solutions, our design enablement and turnkey services, when paired with our industry-leading IP offerings and design tools, are accelerating design cycles and enabling our customers to speed up their time to market for new technologies.”
