GLOBALFOUNDRIES today unveiled AutoPro, the company's new automotive platform to offer carmakers a full range of technologies and manufacturing services.
The company offers a broad set of solutions for a full range of driving system applications, from informational Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to high-performance real-time processors for autonomous cars.
The company's AutoPro technology platform includes offerings in silicon germanium (SiGe), FD-SOI (FDX), CMOS and advanced FinFET nodes, combined with a range of ASIC design services, packaging and IP.
GF says that its CMOS and RF solutions deliver an optimal combination of performance, integration and power efficiency for advanced sensors (radar, lidar, cameras), ADAS and autonomous processing (sensor fusion and AI compute) and body and powertrain control, with embedded eNVM technology for in-vehicle MCUs, as well as connectivity and infotainment systems. The company's BCD and BCDLite technologies provide high-voltage capabilities, with a path to supporting 48 volts that enable automotive power solutions for electric powertrain, Hybrid-electric (HEVs) and Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles.
These automotive solutions are available now, with additional access to quality and service across GF's manufacturing fabs in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. GF AutoPro solutions support the full range of AEC-Q100 quality grades from Grade 2 to Grade 0.
Globalfoundries says that his company is picking "new customers in the automotive space," as carmakers and Tier Ones scramble to "figure out software/hardware partitioning and interfaces" in the connected, highly automated electric vehicles. The new customers includes Audi.
