GLOBALFOUNDRIES and GlobalWafers Joining Hands to Extend Semiconductor Wafer Supply

GWC's silicon wafers are critical input materials for semiconductors and an essential component of GF's supply chain. The wafers are utilized in GF's multibillion-dollar manufacturing facilities, or fabs, to produce the computer chips that are ubiquitous and critical to the world economy.

critical to the world economy. The statement made today increases GF's domestic silicon wafer supply from the United States.

The 300mm wafers produced at GWC's MEMC plant in Missouri will be used at GF's most sophisticated production facility, Fab 8 in Malta, New York, while the 200mm wafers produced at the Missouri plant will be used at GF's Fab 9 in Essex Junction, Vermont. These wafers will be utilized to produce feature-rich semiconductor solutions in order to address the rapidly increasing demand for GF's sophisticated RF technologies in a variety of applications such as 5G smartphones, wireless connection, automotive radar, and aerospace.

These wafers will be utilized to produce feature-rich semiconductor solutions in order to address the rapidly increasing demand for GF's sophisticated RF technologies in a variety of applications such as 5G smartphones, wireless connection, automotive radar, and aerospace. The agreement is bolstered by $9.4 million in state investments and support, as well as backing from the City of O'Fallon, Ameren Missouri, Spire, and Greater St. Louis, Inc.
