GlobalFoundries 2012 Update!

GlobalFoundries 2012 Update!
by Daniel Nenni on 05-04-2012 at 8:55 pm

 What’s new with Glofo? Quite a bit actually. It was interesting to see a Made in America: Global Companies Expand in U.S. Towns segment on semiconductors! Give it a look, I enjoyed it. It’s an election year, jobs are key to any election, so it did not surprise me to see President Obama making the rounds:

In coordination with The White House, GLOBALFOUNDRIES today announced it will help host a visit by President Barack Obama to New York’s Capital Region on Tuesday, May 8, 2012……

“The President’s visit highlights the success of this region to create new public-private economic development initiatives. We’re proud of the role we are playing as a leading semiconductor manufacturer, investing in the new R&D and manufacturing operations now driving innovation, creating new jobs, and increasing economic opportunities throughout the Capital Region,” said Ajit Manocha, CEO, GLOBALFOUNDRIES. “On behalf of our more than 12,000 employees worldwide, and our more than 1,500 employees in New York, I thank President Obama and leaders in this region for recognizing the impact our investments are making to create new jobs and develop upstate New York as a premier hub for the global economy.

If you really want to understand GlobalFoundries read the bookThe Little Engine that Could which highlights optimism, motivation, hard work, and the American dream. One of my favorites as a child. I read it to my children and I hope to read it to my grandchildren.

DAC 2012 is coming June 3-7 (my 29th DAC) and I’m happy to say GlobalFoundries will be there once again. They always put on a great show and this year there is an impressive list of technical seminars:

Next year DAC is in Austin Texas so take advantage of the great San Francisco location, get out and collaborate. The semiconductor ecosystem depends on it. I hope to see you all there!
