​Archer and GlobalFoundries to advance 12CQ chip fabrication

- Archer has commenced working with GlobalFoundries towards industry fabrication of its 12CQ quantum chip technology.
GlobalFoundries is a world-leading semiconductor foundry, providing Archer with expertise, equipment, and manufacturing processes to develop the 12CQ chip.
- Archer is the only ASX listed company and one of few players in the world developing qubit processor technology.
- Archer’s innovation aims to integrate its unique qubit material with mobile-compatible devices that are in a form suitable for industrial-scale semiconductor nanofabrication. To scale the fabrication of Archer’s 12CQ chip devices and components, the Company will need to work with industrial-scale manufacturers in the global semiconductor supply chain (ASX ann. 21 Jul 2022).

Archer will access the technology facilities and manufacturing processes of GlobalFoundries® to explore pathways for potential high-volume manufacturing of 12CQ chip devices and components. Archer will work closely with GlobalFoundries® on device and circuit design, technology  development, and high-volume chip fabrication.

Current quantum computing qubit architectures rely on custom made fabrication, unlike modern classical computing circuits that are manufactured in, and using, well-established industrial semiconductor facilities. Integrating qubit materials with existing industrial-scale foundries is a significant challenge in developing quantum processors.

Commenting on the semiconductor supply-chain link with GlobalFoundries®, Archer CEO Dr Mohammad Choucair said: “Archer is now positioned to leverage the expertise and capabilities of a tier-one semiconductor manufacturer to accelerate the development of the 12CQ quantum computing chip technology.”
