With 50 client designs and growing, 22FDX proves its value as a cost-effective solution for power-sensitive applications.

Santa Clara, Calif., July 9, 2018 – GLOBALFOUNDRIES today announced that the company’s 22nm FD-SOI (22FDX®) technology has delivered more than two billion dollars of client design win revenue. With more than 50 total client designs, 22FDX is proving to be the industry’s leading platform for power-optimized chips across a broad range of high-growth applications such as automotive, 5G connectivity and the Internet of Things (IoT).

For clients who need significant reductions in power and die size relative to a traditional bulk CMOS process, 22FDX offers the industry’s lowest operating voltage, delivering up to 500MHz frequencies at only 0.4 volts. The technology also delivers efficient single-chip integration of RF, transceiver, baseband, processor, and power management components, providing an unparalleled combination of high performance RF and mmWave functionality with low-power, high density logic for devices that require long-lasting battery life, increased processing capability, and connectivity.

“At Synaptics, as we expand upon our industry-leading mobile and PC businesses to include delivering new and innovative products that address the booming IoT market, we require the best available technologies to enable us to deliver top-notch solutions including voice and multimedia processing capabilities for our customers,”  said Rick Bergman, President and CEO at Synaptics. “GF’s 22FDX technology delivers a potent mix of low static and dynamic power along with excellent performance to give us a great platform for our world-class products.”

“The cost of entry for leading processes can be prohibitive to some emerging and startup chip companies,” said Patrick Moorhead, founder and president, Moor Insights & Strategy. “GF's 22FDX is designed to be an enabling technology that is demonstrating that it is optimal for cost-sensitive, battery-powered devices such as mobile, IoT, automotive, RF connectivity and other growth markets.”

“We’re only just beginning,” said GF CEO Tom Caulfied. “We have found a way to separate ourselves from the pack by emphasizing our differentiated FD-SOI roadmap and client-focused offerings that are poised to enable connected intelligence. We will continue to build on our momentum and look for ways to expand our reach to address the evolving needs of the industry.”

According to a recent VLSI Research Survey, FD-SOI technology is gaining significant traction in the industry. GF's roadmap strategy is resonating with the industry and designers are embracing FD-SOI as a complementary technology to FinFET, with FD-SOI designed for specific application spaces, such as IoT, where power consumption is important and the product life is relatively short.

GF is leading this transition with 22FDX, while preparing to deliver a next-generation 12FDX® technology that will provide a full node scaling benefit and improved power efficiency for a new generation of applications, from edge-node artificial intelligence and AR/VR to 5G networking  and advanced driving assistance (ADAS). 22FDX is in early production, with yields and performance matching client expectations.

“With the proliferation of connected devices for smart cities, homes, and industrial applications, network providers need single-chip solutions that support either NB-IoT or LTE-M. Integrated and superior RF with digital PA on GF’s 22FDX platform, coupled with our energy efficient and programmable ZSPnano for baseband and protocol stack, is enabling a dual-mode solution that will better meet the needs of IoT and emerging AIoT (AI of Things) industries.”

--Wayne Dai, Chairman, President and CEO at VeriSilicon.
