Singapore is home to more mature wafer fabs, formerly Chartered Semiconductor, but Globalfoundries said it would increase production capacity for 40nm CMOS at its 300mm wafer fab there by 35 percent. The company will also add the ability to produce RF-SOI technology there.
"We are pleased to see GF bringing its innovative 22FDX technology to China and investing in the capacity necessary to support the country’s growing fabless semiconductor industry," said Min Li, CEO of Rockchip, in the same statement.
Globalfoundries has spent about $13 billion in the United States over the last eight years.
