  • The latest contract increased QCOM's total commitment to $7.4 billion in purchases through 2028, Reuters reports.

  • The deal extends on a $3.2 billion purchasing agreement between the two companies and will produce chips for use in 5G transceivers, Wi-Fi, automotive, and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity.

  • QCOM, specializing in mobile phone chips, was one of GlobalFoundries' first customers to sign a long-term agreement in 2021, covering multiple geographies and technologies.

  • GlobalFoundries Chief Thomas Caulfield said that having Qualcomm as a long-term customer of its upstate New York factory would help, along with federal and state funding, to expand the company's U.S. manufacturing footprint.

  • The U.S. and Europe have already declared their support for the development of advanced technology for semiconductor chipmaking to ease the global supply crunch and reduce dependence on Asian countries.
