In Technology News by Shelly KramerLeave a Comment

In a recently announced strategic partnership, the U.S Department of Defense (DoD) will partner with GLOBALFOUNDRIES, one of the world’s leading specialty foundries, to provide a secure and reliable supply of semiconductor solutions that will be manufactured at Fab 8 in Malta, New York., the company’s most advanced manufacturing facility. The DoD’s partnership with GLOBALFOUNDRIES is both about reliability and security and occurring at a time when there is a global semiconductor shortage and whole industries are feeling the pressure. This move to provide the security needed by the Pentagon for its sensitive military and aerospace needs is part of a concerted effort to on-shore U.S. microelectronics capabilities.
