According to Industry Sources, the California based Semi-Conductor foundry, GlobalFoundries, is reportedly trying to woo Qualcomm and Apple for the 14nm chip orders. Further reports also suggest that they have already acquired orders from AMD, their previous parent company. AMD had also 20nm and 28nm chips made at GlobalFoundries. Apple's major chips contracts have already been taken by TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) and Samsung, both of whom were locked in a heavy tusle for the orders a few weeks ago. The result was that Samsung took the chip orders for iPhone and TSMC got the orders for the iPad. Qualcomm on the other hand have given their major 14nm contracts to Samsung. TSMC has an annoying need to maintain its prices causing it to lose a portion of Apple's A9 chip orders, according to sources. Unlike TSMC, both Samsung and GlobalFoundries could drop their prices for 14nm FinFET node technology in order to win orders, the sources commented. In the heat of the battle for the chips, Globalfoundries is trying to score a point by becoming the major manufacturer of 14nm chips. The semiconductor company recently submitted applications with Malta and Stillwater to build two 5-million-gallon tanks at its Fab 8 site in the Luther Forest Technology Campus.
