Not real surprising. A few billion here and a few billion there and, before you know it, it adds up to really big money. New Fabs are REALLY expensive these days.

The way the economies going, the only companies viable to invest in will be companies like ones that make toothpaste and toilet paper. Commodities that people need even in the midst of deep economic collaps. Pesky Varmint

Will the hiring spree of GF come to a halt now with the slew of bad news? Abu Dhabi seems like a strange choice to build a fab. Wouldn't they have to recruit in-mass from other countries if they go ahead and build fab in Abu-Dhabi.

What would anyone put $ in a semiconductor facility these days. Better to invest in something that will make a profit. Follow Abu-Dhabi's lead and by a few entertainment companies with a good library of popular movies...

It was a very good opportunity Abu-Dhabi had but unfortunately the country will have to either wait for that dream to come true it they may completely loose that if the economic conditions still goes worsen.

AMD moving to TSMC for 28 nm APU,shows that GlobalFoundries in which they have 11% voting rights is not fit for 28 nm process node. Need of hour for GF is to first fix their existing process to be competitive rather than opening new shops.

Let's send our technology and jobs to yet another country where the people have dislike for us...Hey Global foundaries, what's it like to be "owned".

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
