Semiconductors have never been more essential to the world. Recent events – from pandemic-induced supply chain disruptions to geopolitical instabilities – have shined a renewed spotlight on the importance of this strategic industry. Yet even as the world is witnessing unprecedented supply challenges, demand for advanced chips continues to grow. This demand is driven by inflections in several industries, from automotive electrification and autonomy to the emergence of domain-specific computing architectures in the data center. With its IDM 2.0 strategy, Intel is leading the charge to build a more resilient supply of semiconductors through massive new manufacturing investments in the United States and Europe. Through Intel Foundry Services (IFS), this capacity, along with Intel’s leading-edge process and packaging technologies and broad portfolio of IP, will be available to foundry customers across the globe. When combined with the best of the foundry ecosystem, these powerful capabilities will create a structural shift in the foundry landscape and accelerate the next era of computing.
