The Pentagon signed a 7-year contract with one of the UAE companies for the supply of chips for missiles, satellites and airplanes, reports TASS the message "The Wall Street Journal".


Media: American military equipment will be equipped with microchips from the UAE


According to the information, “we are talking about the originally American company Globalfoundaries, which several years ago was fully bought by one of the investment funds of the government of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi”.

The agreement expires in 2023. All this time, Globalfoundaries has pledged to supply the US military with "the most advanced chips of its own production."

The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it is known that the Pentagon took such a step as “to stop being solely dependent on American companies, expand its network of suppliers and gain more timely access to the most advanced microchips”.

“Our goal is to look globally,” said Andre Gadzher, a military spokesman, quoting The Wall Street Journal. “We want access to the newest and the best.”

The newspaper notes that last year Globalfoundries acquired two microchip manufacturing plants located in the United States from the American IBM company. IBM has been the main supplier of microchips for the Pentagon for a long time.

    The owner has changed. But the brains and hands are the same. Like the addiction to the stripes.

      - "His example is science to others!" The Emirates are developing and building everything on petrodollars, up to the most modern electronics, and Kudrin sent oil bucks to America to "lie down". The Emirati rial has not fluctuated for 20 years, and our ruble is like snot in the wind. Sick!

        you can criticize liberal kudrin as much as you like. but the egg was what was needed.
        Let me remind you of the 85th year. the Saudis increased oil production by 3 times and the price of oil collapsed. the flow of bucks in the USSR declined. and the USSR had what today's Russia does not have - a GUARANTEED domestic sales market. and still, the USSR made concessions in order to take loans in the West (let me remind you that it was then that the USSR began to take a lot of money in the West). and if we hadn’t had money in 2008 and last year, we would have to hand over Crimea and Syria and everything else for loans. or remain without credit, but with a bare booty. and so there is a nest egg and you can eat it. which we are doing and are not particularly complex.
        and to those figures who would howl that they say that they would eat well to those industries, and I can remind others how enterprises asked for state aid in 2008. and where would we get it (this very help) if all the money was invested? and there is still a problem. new enterprises would be built on that money, and again they would need state aid. that is, not only would we not have money for existing enterprises. we would have to look for more money and help new enterprises.
        nest egg is always needed, especially in turbulent times.
        and now you can minus.

          ... and, now we discard the beautiful ornate phrases and look at the root, where did the mattresses go ?! ... but not where ... The Emirates firmly took them for Faberge ... specifically, the Mubadala Development Fund, which was bought by GlobalFoundries ...
          GlobalFoundries, an American company headquartered in Milpitas, California, is the third largest contract manufacturer of semiconductor integrated circuits. GlobalFoundries was created on March 2, 2009 based on the AMD manufacturing unit, and then expanded through a merger on January 13, 2010 with Singapore-based Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing.

          In October last year (2014), Globalfoundries acquired the core business unit of IBM. The deal with IBM was completed this summer, as a result, Globalfoundries became the owner of one of the largest patent collections in the field of semiconductor manufacturing.

          According to Gartner, at the end of 2011, Globalfoundries had a 12% share among contracted silicon wafer manufacturers. This is the third indicator. UMC with a share of 12,1% is in second place with a slight lead. The industry leader is TSMC with a market share of 48,8%.
          Source: http://www.vestifinance.ru/articles/64922
          ... but the funniest thing was at the end of 2015:
          The Mubadala Development Fund is considering the possibility of full or partial sale of its share of Globalfoundries. An investor from Abu Dhabi has already held the first negotiations with potential buyers, Bloomberg reports citing an insider. A possible deal is estimated at $ 15-20 billion.

          -----------------------
          Besides the "Kudrin's egg":
          1) Capital flight from the country $ 150 billion plus or minus annually. That is, there are no investment projects in the country and an uncomfortable business environment.
          2) In the budget itself, 10 trillion rubles of unused funds "hung". Compare this with 500 billion for medicine, the same for education, and 100 billion for housing and communal services. The order of the numbers is simple.
          3) In the budget itself, the share of "ineffective spending", the recognition of Medvedev himself - 1 trillion rubles. That is, "cut-rollback", "return to their own," corruption in general.
          4) The tax on luxury and excess profits, a progressive salary bar - about 100 billion rubles.
          5) The issue of money is already 2 trillion rubles.
          We sum up- $ 150 billion * 65 + 10 trillion + 1 trillion + 100 billion = 9,75 + 13 + 0,1 = 22,85 trillion rubles. Or $ 330 billion. Russia's budget is approximately $ 395 billion. Look here. There are practically reserves for the second budget. And they feed us from telly. hi

            3 and Natasha and Petka quarreled. a little egg here at what?
            4 egg pods to do with it? Or do you want to introduce a tax in dollars? where would you get dollars?

              --------------------
              About the "factories". It was possible to buy a number of key factories, such as, for example, we bought a plant for granular polypropylene and polyethylene. We ourselves make this raw material that is extremely necessary for caps and tubes, bags and boxes. These products would be in demand. Well, at least a plant for the production of drill rods and gearboxes for oil and gas production. Although it seems that they themselves have already learned to do something.
              As for the dollars-dollars, I just showed it for clarity, yes, you can be allowed to withdraw part of the profit, but still a lot will remain. By the way, the "imported TV" LG that I have at home is assembled in Russia. So don't. I have almost everything "domestic".
              Regarding the "second budget", I am simply showing how huge the potential is for the growth of wages and pensions, and hence the growth of consumption, in order to give the industry an incentive to increase output. And you can replenish the jar and not take anything from it. It is only necessary to increase the efficiency of management. And if you also invest normally, then you can raise the standard of living by 2 times, and not decrease.

          I fully support you. And keeping some of the money in "exclusive" debt is not the most losing option. Be that as it may, but you, the Russians, went through the beginning of the economic war very easily only due to the presence of a significant "money-box".

    GLOBALFOUNDRIES is based in Silicon Valley with manufacturing operations in Dresden, Germany; Malta and East Fishkill New York, Vermont and Singapore. These sites are supported by a global network of R&D, design enablement, and customer support operations in Singapore, China, Taiwan, Japan, the United States,

    The article is crazy in the sense that these chips have the same attitude to the UAE as boxing to ballet. All GlobalFoundries factories in the USA, Germany and Singapore. The Arabs simply bought up the production association AMD, which, apparently, was in dire need of money, unable to withstand competition with Intel. I don’t think that the Arabs will get anything in terms of technology.
