GlobalFoundries of Santa Clara, CA, USA (one of the world’s largest semiconductor foundries, with operations in Singapore, Germany and the USA) has expanded its growing RFwave Partner Program by adding nine new partners, including Akronic, Ask Radio, Catena, University of Waterloo Centre for Intelligent Antenna and Radio Systems (CIARS), Giga Solution, Helic, Incize, Mentor Graphics and Xpeedic Technology. They join existing RFwave Program members including asicNorth, Cadence, CoreHW, CWS, Keysight Technologies, Spectral Design, and WEASIC.

The new partners will provide unique mmWave test and characterization capabilities along with design services, intellectual property (IP) and electronic deisgn automation (EDA) solutions that should enable clients to rapidly implement RF designs in applications spanning Internet-of-Things (IoT), mobile, RF connectivity, and networking markets.

Launched in March, the RFwave Partner Program builds on GlobalFoundries’ radio frequency (RF) solutions, such as fully depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD-SOI), RF CMOS (bulk and advanced CMOS nodes), RF SOI and silicon germanium (SiGe) technologies. The program provides a low-risk, cost-effective path for designers seeking to build highly optimized RF solutions for a range of wireless applications such as IoT across various wireless connectivity and cellular standards, standalone or transceiver integrated 5G front-end modules, millimeter-wave (mmWave) backhaul, automotive radar, small-cell and fixed-wireless and satellite broadband.

“As the RFwave program continues to expand, partners play a critical role in helping to serve our growing number of clients and extend the reach of our RF ecosystem by providing innovative RF-tailored solutions and services,” says Mark Ireland, VP of ecosystem partnerships. “These new partners will help drive deeper engagement and enhance technology collaboration, including tighter interlock around quality, qualification and development methodology, enabling us to deliver advanced highly integrated RF solutions.”

GlobalFoundries says it is focused on building strong ecosystem partnerships with industry leaders. With the RFwave program, partners and clients can benefit from a greater availability of resources to deliver innovative, highly optimized RF solutions.
