New GlobalFoundries fab to be built in Singapore

28 July 2021 News

GlobalFoundries (GF) is expanding its global manufacturing footprint with the construction of a new semiconductor fabrication plant (fab) on its Singapore campus. 

The global demand for semiconductor chips is growing at an unprecedented rate, with worldwide semiconductor revenue projected to increase 2,1 times in the next eight years. To meet that demand, GF has planned capacity expansions at all its manufacturing sites in the US, Germany and starting with the construction of phase one of its 300 mm fab expansion, Singapore.

In partnership with the Singapore Economic Development Board and with co-investments from committed customers, GF’s more than $4 billion investment will play an important role in meeting the growing demand for the company’s manufacturing technologies and services.  

When complete, GF will add capacity for 450 000 wafers per year, bringing its Singapore campus up to approximately 1,5 million wafers per year. The new fab will be the most advanced semiconductor manufacturing facility in Singapore.
