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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
