EvoNexus and GLOBALFOUNDRIES Partner to Accelerate Growth of Wireless and IoT Startups

EvoNexus, and GLOBALFOUNDRIES, have announced a collaboration to accelerate the growth of semiconductor startups developing breakthrough products for wireless and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. EvoNexus has an extensive history and success incubating startups across the wireless ecosystem.

GF provides a broad range of platforms and features with a unique mix of design, development and fabrication services. As one of the leading innovators of SOI-based technology, GF’s solutions deliver greater bandwidth, ultra-low power, higher levels of integration, and lower latency for scalable and reliable applications that are fundamental to smart, connected IoT and wireless connectivity markets. Specifically, GF and their customers, along with the products they develop, will have a foundational impact on the emerging global 5G ecosystem. Through access to this technical expertise and these cutting-edge technologies, EvoNexus’ partners will be further empowered to develop new solutions and will speed their time to market.

EvoNexus’ proven incubation program and corporate partnerships that include Qualcomm, Murata, pSemi, TDK InvenSense and Viasat, coupled with GF's differentiated, feature rich solutions will enable promising semiconductor startups to build innovative products that will help connect and power the digital world.

5G, IoT, Telemedicine, Industry 4.0, AI, Smart Homes and AgTech represent opportunities where an early stage venture can establish a beachhead in nascent markets. The GlobalFoundries and EvoNexus collaboration will provide innovators with differentiated solutions, while reducing the cost of product development and speed time to a market window that is fleeting.

GlobalFoundries manufacturing and technology access provides a key element as EvoNexus launches an outreach to locate and assist early stage semiconductor ventures regardless of their location. Access to high quality chip manufacturing has never been more difficult with the major OEMs consuming most of the global capacity. GlobalFoundries recognizes that semiconductor design innovation often comes from a startup. Though this partnership EvoNexus and GlobalFoundries will be able to help companies develop breakthrough designs that make IoT and 5G a reality.
