Default Globalfoundries to Start Planning Fab 3 “Very Soon”

Globalfoundries, a joint venture between Advanced Micro Devices and Advanced Technology Investment Company, only recently started to construct its second manufacturing facility – fab 2 – in the state of New York. But very shortly the contract maker of semiconductors will start to plan its third production factory – fab 3 – according to the chairman of the firm.
“Globalfoundries is meant to be the world’s leading competitor in this space. It is our [aim] to turn into a true global player. We truly expect that the fab 3 will be in the planning stages very soon,” said Hector Ruiz, chairman of Globalfoundries, on the sidelines of the groundbreaking of the fab 2.
Fab 2 is designed to manufacture microprocessors and logic products on 300mm wafers. Initial production is expected to ramp at the 28nm technology node in 2012 and move to volume manufacturing on the 22nm node.
