GLOBALFOUNDRIES and INVECAS Introduce New Dedicated Design Service Partner for Leading-Edge Technologies

INVECAS Inc. will provide design services to GLOBALFOUNDRIES customers designing on leading-edge processes

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 6, 2014 — GLOBALFOUNDRIES, a leading provider of advanced semiconductor manufacturing, design and technology solutions, today announced a partnership with INVECAS Inc., a newly formed design services provider focused on accelerating customer introduction of new products on leading-edge semiconductor process technologies. INVECAS will operate multiple system-on-chip (SoC) design service centers in both the United States and India to provide exclusive support for GLOBALFOUNDRIES customers.

This new partnership is intended to serve a variety of customers across multiple market segments, from small fabless companies with limited internal resources to large systems companies seeking to differentiate their products through customized silicon. INVECAS will focus on offering design services for GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ leading-edge processes including 14nm FinFET, addressing multiple market segments including high-performance computing, consumer electronics, and mobile communications.

INVECAS will operate design service centers in Santa Clara, Calif., Burlington, Vt., Bangalore, India and Hyderabad, India. INVECAS design centers will be staffed by more than 600 engineers and will provide customers with GLOBALFOUNDRIES-focused design services.

“These newly launched centers will provide a significant complement to our in-house global design solutions capabilities while enhancing our existing ecosystem of design and IP partners,” said Gregg Bartlett, senior vice president of product management at GLOBALFOUNDRIES. “The INVECAS team has a strong track record of providing spec-to-silicon solutions for complex SoC designs in multiple high-volume market segments. They will be an excellent partner to help us expand the services available to customers designing products on the leading edge of technology.”

“By combining our proven system-level expertise with a laser-like focus on GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ advanced processes, INVECAS brings unrivaled expertise to some of the most difficult issues facing designers today,” said Dasaradha Gude, chairman of INVECAS Inc. “This will enable a broader range of customers to accelerate time-to-volume of designs on complex technologies like 14nm FinFETs.”

Through INVECAS, customers will have access to a broad spectrum of services such as system design, embedded software design, SoC design and verification, and physical implementation.

In additional to traditional design services, INVECAS will offer customers a wide selection of design IP across various GLOBALFOUNDRIES process nodes. The IP offerings include standard cells, IOs, memories, analog, and complex interface IP solutions. The center will expand the availability and affordability of qualified IP solutions for GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ leading-edge process technologies.

The new design centers complement GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ broad ecosystem of partners enabling customers to achieve the fastest time-to-volume. Called GLOBALSOLUTIONSSM, the ecosystem includes partners in all aspects of design enablement and turnkey services, OPC and mask operations, and advanced capabilities in assembly solutions.


INVECAS offers semiconductor IPs, design realization and Silicon realization services exclusively for GLOBALFOUNDRIES customers. INVECAS will be staffed by more than 600 engineers with development centers in US and India. The team has strong track record in delivering world class high speed interface and memory IPs. INVECAS’s design realization team has achieved first time silicon success on multiple designs on leading edge processes. For more information, visit
