Leti has joined the GlobalFoundries’ GlobalSolutions ecosystem as an ASIC provider, specifically to support GF’s 22FDX™ technology platform. (Read the press release here.) Earlier this year, Leti assigned a team of experts to GF’s’ Dresden Fab 1 to support ramp up of the platform. As an ecosystem partner, Leti will provide GF customers with circuit-design IP, including its back-bias feature for FD-SOI, which enables exceptional performance at very low voltages with low leakage.

“This strategic partnership with GlobalFoundries positions Leti to help a broad range of designers utilize FD-SOI technology’s significant strengths in ultra-low-power and high performance in their IoT and mobile devices with 22nm technology,” said Marie Semeria, Leti CEO. “In addition, it gives both sides’ customers increased access to our respective technologies. This kind of partnership is a key part of Leti’s global strategy.”

As noted in the press release, “The versatility of the 22FDX platform is a result of unmatched design flexibility and intelligence, including software-controlled transistor body-biasing that provides real-time trade-offs between power and performance. Delivering FinFET-like performance and energy-efficiency at a cost comparable to 28nm planar technologies, the platform enables a new level of innovations on next-generation chips and sets new standards in-terms of user experience for Internet of Things (IoT), mainstream mobile, RF and networking applications.”
