GlobalFoundries introduces new automotive platform for connected cars
GlobalFoundries’ new platform, AutoPro, is designed to provide automotive customers a broad set of technology solutions and manufacturing services that minimize certification efforts and speed time-to-market.
“As vehicles move rapidly toward greater autonomy, auto manufacturers and parts suppliers are designing new ICs,” said Gregg Bartlett, Senior Vice President of the CMOS Business Unit at GF. “GF’s diverse automotive platform combines a range of technologies and services that meet the complexity and requirements for applications that enable connected intelligence for the automotive industry.”
The company’s AutoPro technology platform includes offerings in silicon germanium (SiGe), FD-SOI (FDX), CMOS, and advanced FinFET nodes, combined with a range of ASIC design services, packaging, and IP. GF’s CMOS and RF solutions are designed to deliver an optimal combination of performance, integration, and power efficiency for advanced sensors (radar, lidar, cameras), ADAS and autonomous processing (sensor fusion and AI compute), and body and powertrain control, with embedded eNVM technology for in-vehicle MCUs, as well as connectivity and infotainment systems. The company’s BCD and BCDLite technologies provide high-voltage capabilities, with a path to supporting 48 volts that enable automotive power solutions for electric powertrain, hybrid-electric (HEVs), and internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.
These automotive solutions are available now, with additional access to quality and service across GF’s manufacturing facilities in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. GF AutoPro solutions support the full range of AEC-Q100 quality grades from Grade 2 to Grade 0.
