ARM inks multi-year deal with Globalfoundries to produce efficient 20nm chips

ARM contracts Globalfoundries to make 20nm chips in a multi-year deal

Globalfoundries has just inked a multi-year deal with mobile chipmaker, ARM. The deal will see Globalfoundries produce ARM's next-generation mobile system-on-chip (SoC) processors.




Glofo's factories are equipped to handle 20nm and FinFET process technologies, with the deal also calling on ARM to develop its Artisan Physical IP platform, which includes cell libraries, memory compilers, and POP IP solutions.


The chips that will be made will be baked into future smart devices, and ultra-thin notebooks. ARM and Globalfoundries have been working together for a few years now, where we've seen them developing ARM Cortex A-series processors at Glofo's Malta, New York fab. The new deal should see the companies working on more energy-efficient ARM Cortex CPUs and ARM Mali GPUs for mobile devices.
