GlobalFoundries® 45 nm RFSOI


CMC offers access to the GlobalFoundries® (GF) 45 nm RF Silicon on Insulator (SOI) CMOS technology. The GF 45RFSOI technology is targeted for high performance, next-generation mobile communication infrastructure. This technology offers collective benefits of RF-centric features, device stacking, an optimized BEOL and a high-resistivity substrate. The RF centric process enhancements of 45RFSOI build on the inherent advantages of its SOI technology base delivers an optimized RF performance. The technology is well suited for application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) designs, SRAM, and custom logic designs.

For more information, please refer to the GlobalFoundries RF SOI Technologies web page.
