GLOBALFOUNDRIES 22FDX RF Solution Provides the Basis for Next-Gen mmWave Automotive Radar

Next-gene짯ra짯ti짯on auto radar tech짯no짯lo짯gy, based on GF22FDX RF solu짯ti짯on, will help make vehic짯les smar짯ter and roads even safer than today

San짯ta Cla짯ra, Calif., March 9, 2021 GLOBALFOUNDRIES짰 (GF짰), the glo짯bal lea짯der in spe짯cial짯ty semi짯con짯duc짯tor manu짯fac짯tu짯ring, and Bosch will part짯ner to deve짯lop and manu짯fac짯tu짯re next-gene짯ra짯ti짯on auto짯mo짯ti짯ve radar technology.

Bosch cho짯se GF as its part짯ner to deve짯lop a mmWa짯ve auto짯mo짯ti짯ve radar sys짯tem-on-chip (SoC) for Advan짯ced Dri짯ver Assis짯tance Sys짯tems (ADAS) appli짯ca짯ti짯ons, manu짯fac짯tu짯red using GF22FDXRF solu짯ti짯on. ADAS appli짯ca짯ti짯ons help dri짯vers stay safe by kee짯ping a vehic짯le in the cor짯rect lane, war짯ning of col짯li짯si짯ons, initia짯ting emer짯gen짯cy bra짯king, assis짯ting with par짯king, and more.

Bosch셲 choice of GF as the part짯ner for its next-gen mmWa짯ve auto짯mo짯ti짯ve radar is based on GF셲 lea짯der짯ship in spe짯cial짯ty foundry solu짯ti짯ons for RF and mmWa짯ve. GF22FDX RF solu짯ti짯on, with its best-in-class per짯for짯mance, power con짯sump짯ti짯on, and broad fea짯ture inte짯gra짯ti짯on capa짯bi짯li짯ty, is the semi짯con짯duc짯tor solu짯ti짯on of choice for auto짯mo짯ti짯ve radar.

We are proud to part짯ner with Bosch to deve짯lop a new gene짯ra짯ti짯on of auto짯mo짯ti짯ve radar, and to help make vehic짯les smar짯ter and roads even safer than they are today, said Mike Hogan, seni짯or vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger of Auto짯mo짯ti짯ve, Indus짯tri짯al and Mul짯ti-mar짯ket at GF. 쏝osch셲 lea짯der짯ship, as an inno짯va짯tor and pro짯vi짯der of top-qua짯li짯ty OEM solu짯ti짯ons to the auto indus짯try, is unques짯tionable. At GF, we have embra짯ced excel짯lence in auto짯mo짯ti짯ve semi짯con짯duc짯tors as a core stra짯tegy, and our 22FDX is unbeata짯ble as a high-per짯for짯mance, low-power solu짯ti짯on. In addi짯ti짯on, GF is the only foundry with in-house mmWa짯ve test capability.

Depen짯da짯ble radar and ADAS sys짯tems are of para짯mount importance to dri짯vers and auto짯ma짯kers around the world, sta짯ted Oli짯ver Wolst, seni짯or vice pre짯si짯dent hea짯ding Bosch셲 Inte짯gra짯ted Cir짯cuit divi짯si짯on. 쏻e cho짯se to part짯ner with Glo짯bal짯Found짯ries for their pro짯ven lea짯der짯ship in RF and mmWa짯ve tech짯no짯lo짯gy, which is rein짯forced by their deep exper짯ti짯se in the auto짯mo짯ti짯ve mar짯ket. We careful짯ly scru짯ti짯ni짯zed the uni짯ver짯se of available semi짯con짯duc짯tor solu짯ti짯ons, and GF22FDX RF solu짯ti짯on pro짯ved to be today셲 most attrac짯ti짯ve and most appro짯pria짯te plat짯form for our next gene짯ra짯ti짯on of high짯ly effi짯ci짯ent and safe auto짯mo짯ti짯ve radars.

GF22FDX chips are manu짯fac짯tu짯red at its Fab 1 faci짯li짯ty in Dres짯den, Germany.

As part of the part짯ner짯ship, Bosch will uti짯li짯ze GF셲 auto짯mo짯ti짯ve turn짯key solu짯ti짯ons for mmWa짯ve test짯ing and pack짯a짯ging deve짯lo짯p짯ment, which will assist in incre짯asing design effi짯ci짯en짯cy and spee짯ding time to mar짯ket. The짯se post-fab and turn짯key ser짯vices will take place at GF셲 Fab 1 in Dres짯den and at GF셲 world-class mmWa짯ve test짯ing lab at Fab 9 near Bur짯ling짯ton, Vermont.

The first 22F짯DX-based radar SoCs for fur짯ther test짯ing of Bosch셲 new gene짯ra짯ti짯on of auto짯mo짯ti짯ve radars are tar짯ge짯ted for deli짯very in the second half of 2021.

To date, GF22FDX solu짯ti짯ons have rea짯li짯zed $4.5 bil짯li짯on in design wins, with more than 350 mil짯li짯on chips ship짯ped to cus짯to짯mers around the world.
