Qualcomm (QCOM) has tapped Globalfoundries to manufacture its 28nm baseband processors, reports Taiwan's Commercial Times. It was recently reported Qualcomm will also turn to UMC and Samsung to address its 28nm chip needs: the failure of historical foundry partner TSMC (TSM) to provide adequate 28nm supplies affected Qualcomm's June quarter chip guidance, and has reportedly cost it some business with smartphone OEMs.
