Globalfoundries, the contract manufacturer of semiconductors controlled by Advanced Micro Devices and Advanced Technology Investment Company, said on Monday that it would make a major announcement next week at the Globalfoundries Technology Conference.

"GTC 2010 will feature several major announcements about our technology roadmap, manufacturing operations, and long-term vision - and much of this news will be shared for the first time with onsite attendees," the company said in its statement on Tuesday.

Globalfoundries did not elaborate about any details, but it is likely that the firm will unveil certain details about its sub-28nm process technologies, e.g., 22nm and 20nm. Another important update will likely concern the progress with different 28nm fabrication processes.

The GTC 2010 will bring together numerous executives of Globalfoundries along with semiconductor industry execs, including those from AMD, ARM, ST Microelectronics. Besides, the company also invited executives from companies that develop software for creation of computer chips.

The GTC 2010 forum will take place on September 1, 2010, at 1:00 p.m. PDT in the auditorium of the Santa Clara, California, Convention Center.

I would imagine a big announcement is that they are ready to start accepting 28nm designs.

That is, after-all, when their business (other than AMD) is really going to START, isn't it? Sounds like a good reason to throw a conference...especially when they get bragging rights over TSMC.

You couple all the little things they've said...."a company COULD launch in a product in H1 2011"..."We'll begin accepting designs in H2 2010"...This would be a good time to start accepting tape-outs.
