The success story of Saxony’s microelectronics industry is essentially linked to AMD (today: GLOBALFOUNDRIES) setting up shop in Dresden: Since the electronics group had started to build its first processor plant outside the USA right here in 1996, more than 11,000 million euros have been invested into the Dresden site. Today, the GLOBALFOUNDRIES Fab 1 employs more than 3,200 technicians, engineers, and specialists. With its power saving FDX technology, the location in Saxony focuses specifically on electronics for the internet of things and other pioneering topics of the future. And, the GLOBALFOUNDRIES factory in Dresden obtains the certification for the sophisticated production of components for the automobile industry.
