Onsemi has completed its acquisition of GlobalFoundries’ 300 mm East Fishkill, New York, fab.

The East Fishkill fab will be the largest Onsemi manufacturing facility in the U.S. and will feature 40 nm and 65 nm technology nodes with specialized processing capabilities required for image sensor production. The deal will add more than 1,000 engineers and workers to the Onsemi team and will help the company secure long-term supply of power, analog and sensing products.

Under the deal, Onsemi will continue to supply GF with differentiated semiconductor solutions and investments in research and development. Both companies will also collaborate on future semiconductor growth.

The CHIPS and Science Act, which was passed last year by President Biden to provide up to $52 billion in funding to domestic semiconductor manufacturing, will allow Onsemi to evaluate opportunities for expansion and growth at the fab. Additionally, the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) said it will donate $500,000 over the next 10 years to support projects and education aimed at increasing the number of engineers in the chip industry.

“With the addition of EFK to our manufacturing footprint, Onsemi will have the only 12-inch power discrete and image sensor fab in the U.S., enabling us to accelerate our growth in the megatrends of vehicle electrification, ADAS, energy infrastructure and factory automation,” said Hassane El-Khoury, president and CEO at Onsemi. “We look forward to working with Empire State Development and local government officials to find key community programs and educational partnerships that will allow us to identify, train and employ the next generation of semiconductor talent in New York.”
