“12FDX development will deliver another breakthrough in power, performance, and intelligent scaling as 12nm is best for double patterning and delivers best system performance and power at the lowest process complexity,” said Marie Semeria, CEO of Leti, an institute of CEA Tech. “We are pleased to see the results of the collaboration between the Leti teams and GLOBALFOUNDRIES in the U.S. and Germany extending the roadmap for FD-SOI technology, which will become the best platform for full system on chip integration of connected devices.”
“We are very pleased to see a strong momentum and a very solid adoption from fabless customers in 22FDX offering. Now this new 12FDX offering will further expand FD-SOI market adoption,” said Paul Boudre, Soitec CEO. “At Soitec, we are fully prepared to support GLOBALFOUNDRIES with high volumes, high quality FD-SOI substrates from 22nm to 12nm. This is an amazing opportunity for our industry just in time to support a big wave of new mobile and connected applications.”
