In an effort to avoid the chip shortages that wreaked havoc on the automotive industry, General Motors has signed a long-term deal with GlobalFoundries to provide the automaker with U.S.-manufactured semiconductors. The chips will be produced at GlobalFoundries’ facility in upstate New York. GM hopes this partnership will decrease the amount of unique chips needs for its vehicles, allowing the chips to be manufactured in higher volumes.

The supply agreement with GlobalFoundries will help establish a strong, resilient supply of critical technology in the U.S. that will help GM meet this demand, while delivering new technology and features to our customers.”
