GlobalFoundries and Motorola Solutions announced a long-term agreement to safeguard the supply of innovative chip solutions for Motorola Solutions’ radios.

“Millions of first responders, utilities, infrastructure providers and businesses rely on Motorola Solutions radios for everyday and emergency communications, and it is essential that we maintain supply of these critical components,” said Scott Mottonen, senior vice president of products, Motorola Solutions. “Our long-term relationship with GF provides important capabilities, reliable U.S.-based manufacturing and added assurance that we will continue to meet the safety and security needs of our customers across the globe.”

Motorola Solutions provides two-way radios for first responders, providing secure, flexible and reliable emergency communications. Several critical chips the company designs for its public-safety, professional and commercial radios are manufactured in Vermont by GF, a manufacture of silicon-germanium (SiGe) products, which are used in generations of wireless and wired networks. GF's SiGe process technology enables the highly reliable, long-range, secure and clear communications vital to police, fire and other first responders.

"Our commitment to the development and manufacturing of mission-critical technologies that enables our customers to differentiate their products is in our DNA,” said Dr. Bami Bastani, senior vice president and general manager, mobile and wireless infrastructure strategic business unit at GF. “Through long-term agreements, we provide assured supply of highly reliable and vital chips used in millions of mission-critical products worldwide. A great example of this is our collaboration with Motorola Solutions on their two-way radios, which are relied upon by first responders everywhere. We are gratified to serve the industry with feature-rich solutions but also the innovations in RF technology that deliver low noise and high power and efficiency to allow for clear and long-range communications in highly demanding situations.”
