Global Foundries has planned to build a 12-inch wafer production facility in Chengdu.
Global Foundries is a leading full-service semiconductor design, development, fabrication and innovation company with locations across the globe. Its Chengdu plant in two phases is located at the city's Hi-tech Industrial Development Zone. The first phase is a 12-inch wafer production line with CMOS technology and is expected to become operational by the end of 2018. The second one is a 12-inch wafer production line with the latest 22FDX® 22nm FD-SOI technology and hopefully will be put into operation in the fourth quarter of 2019.
In addition, the Chengdu city government and Global Foundries will co-implement an action plan about building an integrated circuit ecosystem in the city, with an overall investment of nearly US$10 billion from the latter.
Global Foundries will build the facility in Chengdu because of the city's strong industrial foundation and development prospect, according to sources from the company. Over the recent years, Chengdu has been focusing on the development of electronic information industry, one of the city's emerging strategic industries.
Regarding the local integrated circuit industrial chain, the city has attracted major domestic and overseas companies, including Intel, Texas Instruments, AMD, Media Tek and Spreadtrum to establish presence here, and has built a complete industrial chain from IC design, wafer manufacturing to IC packaging and testing.
