MediaTek may order the release of single-chip systems at Globalfoundries
According to the source, referring to data of the industry, the company MediaTek, feeling the growing competition from Chinese companies Spreadtrum and HiSilicon can order the production of single-chip systems at Globalfoundries. The chip, designed for production at the 22-nanometer process technology, FD-SOI will be designed for smartphones primary and secondary level.
Major contract manufacturers of semiconductor products are offered by three 22-nanometer technology: CMOS, FD-SOI and FinFET. Technology FD-SOI attracted MediaTek low cost and low power consumption products.
For SoC, focused on the use of high end smartphones MediaTek is planning to use a 12-nanometer or 16-nanometer technology offered by TSMC.
