The agreement signed by Leti and GlobalFoundries, the world’s second-largest foundry, in 2015 is now in the implementation phase. The agreement is for 22 nm FD-SOI, a high-potential technology for IoT applications due to its excellent balance between performance, cost, and miniaturization. GlobalFoundries has started up production at its Dresden, Germany plant for sampling purposes. Leti is providing support scaling up the technology for mass production and qualifying the products. The ultimate goal is to enter full-scale production in 2017. At the same time, Leti will integrate 22 nm FD-SOI into its Silicon Impulse circuit design service lineup, with the goal of encouraging the design of innovative products that could then be manufactured by GlobalFoundries.
