As the former girlfriend of AMD, global foundries (GF) has been actively reducing investment and selling the fab for the past two years, but today they announced that they have acquired 66 acres of land near New York State, and Fab 8 fab is ready to increase production capacity.

Lattice core was born in the wafer manufacturing department of AMD. Later, amd accepted the Abu Dhabi Investment Fund of the United Arab Emirates and sold the wafer manufacturing department to establish a qualified core. At present, amd shares have all withdrawn. Lattice core is a 100% UAE company, but lattice core production base is mainly in the United States, especially fab8 wafer factory in New York state.

Fab8 factory is the 14nm and 12NM factory of lattice core. After quitting the 7Nm process competition, it is the most advanced wafer factory of lattice core. The IO core of 7Nm sharp dragon and Xiaolong is the main OEM for AMD, as well as the previous Polaris core GPU, sharp dragon I and sharp dragon II processors.

Lattice core hasn't made any money since AMD's separation. They have been losing money in recent years and have begun to cut their business. Many of its Fabs have been sold at low prices. In general, lattice core is unlikely to invest heavily.

However, this year's more severe sanctions against Huawei by the United States gave Gexin an opportunity. After the US announced a new ban in mid May,Lattice core immediately announced the implementation of export controlsIt will also implement the U.S. international arms trade regulations (Itar) and export administration regulations (ear). It will also become the most advanced wafer factory in the U.S. that complies with Itar regulations.

The move will strengthen cooperation with the U.S. Department of defense and the U.S. defense industry, further consolidate U.S. national security, better serve the U.S. government and the technology it needs in the coming decades, said Gexin.

The above measures will take effect later this year to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of US defense related applications, equipment and parts produced by FAB 8 plant.

GE has recently partnered with Skywater, which makes chips available to the U.S. government and military, and apparently has now focused on the U.S.

It should be noted that,The $10 billion wafer factory that Gexin promised to invest in Chengdu has turned yellowThe last 74 employees also retired after signing the separation agreement.

In the current situation, lattice core can no longer invest in the construction of wafer factories in China.
