@SiliconAsia, well said. I agree with you that experienced top Sr.staff is must for the stability of the company. Surprised to see so many sernior staff leaving, curios to know if any problem with the company ?
Wow! it looks like GF is in much deeper trouble than what shows in the surface. Without stable technology group, you don't have the foundation.

As Manocha said "Globalfoundries will continue to seek out world-class talent to help drive the company to the next level", Globalfoundries should look for experienced engineers to resolve the yield issues, the yield problem is not limited to process only but also IP and EDA support. All those factors must be taken into consideration for yield improvement.
