In September 2011, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the establishment of the Global 450 Consortium (G450C) at SUNY Poly CNSE’s Albany NanoTech Complex. This $4.8 billion, first-of-its-kind collaboration headquartered and housed at CNSE is comprised of five leading international companies working to create the next generation of computer chip technology: IBM, Intel, GlobalFoundries, Samsung and TSMC.

The goal of the Global 450 Consortium is to support the industry transition from 300mm wafer to 450mm wafer production. The consortium will leverage industry and government investments, and the state-of-the-art infrastructure at SUNY Poly CNSE’s Albany NanoTech Complex to demonstrate and deploy 450mm wafer tools and process capabilities. This program has significant potential benefits to the nanoelectronics industry and New York State.
