Intel invests $3 billion to expand its most advanced factory

Intel announced an investment of more than $3 billion to expand your plant D1X, in the state of Oregon, the most advanced company. As noted, Intel engineers will now have access to an additional cleanroom/cleanroom from 25,000 square meters to develop next-generation manufacturing process technologies.

Essentially, this factory will be responsible for starting mass production of the manufacturing process. Intel 4 during the second half of this year; the Intel3 during the second half of 2023; the Intel 20A during the first half of 2024; and the Intel A18 during the second half of 2024.

Intel today celebrated the grand opening of the latest addition to D1X, its state-of-the-art factory in Hillsboro, Oregon. At a groundbreaking ceremony attended by senior government officials and community leaders, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger highlighted the company’s positive impact in Oregon and reiterated his commitment to American leadership in semiconductor research and development (R&D).

In honor of the site’s legacy of innovation, Intel also announced a new name for the nearly 500-acre (2 km2) campus: Gordon Moore Park at Ronler Acres. The new name recognizes the site’s unique contributions to driving Moore’s Law, the 1965 prediction of Intel co-founder Gordon Moore, which has guided innovation in the semiconductor industry for more than 50 years. .

“Since its inception, Intel has been dedicated to relentlessly advancing Moore’s Law. This new factory space will strengthen our ability to deliver the accelerated process roadmap needed to support our bold IDM 2.0 strategy. Oregon has long been the heart of our global semiconductor R&D, and I can think of no better way to honor Gordon Moore’s legacy than by naming this campus after him which, like him, played a such an important role in the evolution of our industry,” said Pat Gelsinger, CEO of Intel.

With “Mod3” – an investment of more than $3 billion to expand D1X – Intel engineers now have an additional 25,000 square meters of cleanroom space to develop next-generation silicon processing technologies. At any given time, various logic process technologies are in various stages of the development cycle at the D1X factory.

The technology development team creates the core manufacturing technology needed to bring innovations to the physical world. New process technologies are then transferred in kind from this central Oregon development facility to Intel’s global network of high-volume manufacturing centers. After the handover, the factory network and the development factory work together to continue making operational improvements. This allows rapid branching of operations, rapid learning, and better quality control.
