Aerospace and Defense
Semiconductor solutions for aerospace and defense (A&D) systems must address mission-critical availability, performance, processing and security requirements while balancing seemingly opposing demands for size, weight and power (SWaP) reduction. At the same time, they must operate reliably, in potentially extreme conditions, to ensure that crucial safety and security functions remain uncompromised.
To bring these differentiated solutions quickly from concept to reality, companies in the A&D industry need advanced semiconductor technologies, end-to-end services and a partner they can rely on.
As a market leader in providing Trusted semiconductors for more than a decade, GLOBALFOUNDRIES knows what it takes to develop and manufacture solutions requiring the highest levels of security, whether for acoustics, avionics, electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) imaging, navigation, radar or secure communications/computing solutions. GF’s comprehensive portfolio of established and leading edge technologies, expert support and advanced packaging options are designed to support the complex and varied needs of A&D industry leaders.
|Technology You Can Build On||Security You Can Rely On|
|More than ever, the A&D industry must rapidly bring advanced technology to bear to solve its toughest challenges. GF’s broad portfolio includes both advanced CMOS process technology nodes, such as 12 nm, along with differentiated technologies like silicon germanium (SiGe), fully depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD-SOI) and a full suite of RF and mmWave-capable solutions.||At GF, we recognize that you are entrusting us with your most important asset: the intellectual property that defines your company. You can have confidence that safeguarding your data is our top priority, with additional protection available when needed, including the ability to handle export-controlled and Trusted designs for many technology nodes.|
|GF is the second largest foundry in the world and the only US-based pure play foundry. You can put our manufacturing scale and commitment to execution excellence to work for you to help get your designs to market efficiently and quickly.||GF understands that security needs vary by client, application and geography. For US-centric clients, GF can ensure completely onshore data handling and manufacturing for many of our technologies, as well as a Trusted manufacturing flow. For growth markets outside the US where local sourcing is important, you can take advantage of GF’s globally distributed manufacturing centers.|

Phased array radar systems are a fundamental part of many A&D platforms. GF technologies are an excellent fit to meet the growing need for increased processing power per pixel and to handle increasingly challenging power and bandwidth budgets:
- 22FDX® RF and mmWave performance combined with exceptional digital density
- 45RFSOI for beamforming applications
- Wide variety of IP for application-optimized designs
Today security is paramount in any mission-critical application. GF has a long history of manufacturing secure processing solutions to client specifications. Secure processors range from small, embedded cores for storing local encryption keys to large parallel-processing engines.
The unique environment of high altitude and space create special challenges for semiconductors. With many solutions currently in the air and orbiting the earth powered by GF silicon, GF offers expertise and solutions you can count on:
- Multiple technologies on SOI substrates
- Experience in low temperature applications
- Wide variety of deliverable options, ranging from wafers to modules
