GF Expands its RFwave Partner Program to Speed up Time-to-Market for 5G Applications

GLOBALFOUNDRIES has announced the addition of nine new partners to its growing RFwave Partner Program, including AkronIC, Ask Radio, Catena, University of Waterloo Centre for Intelligent Antenna and Radio Systems (CIARS), Giga Solution, Helic, Incize, Mentor Graphics and Xpeedic Technology. These new partners will provide unique mmWave test and characterization capabilities along with design services, IP and EDA solutions that will enable GF clients to rapidly implement RF designs in applications spanning Internet-of-Things (IoT), mobile, RF connectivity, and networking markets.

The RFwave Partner Program builds upon GF’s leading radio frequency (RF) solutions, such as FD-SOI, RF CMOS (bulk and advanced CMOS nodes), RF SOI and silicon germanium (SiGe) technologies. The program provides a low-risk, cost-effective path for designers seeking to build highly optimized RF solutions for a range of wireless applications such as IoT across various wireless connectivity and cellular standards, standalone or transceiver integrated 5G front end modules, mmWave backhaul, automotive radar, small cell and fixed wireless and satellite broadband.

GF is focused on building strong ecosystem partnerships with industry leaders. With the RFwave program, GF’s partners and clients can now benefit from a greater availability of resources to deliver innovative, highly optimized RF solutions. The new partners join current RFwave Program members including asicNorth, Cadence, CoreHW, CWS, Keysight Technologies, Spectral Design, and WEASIC.
