Intel’s Big Bet on Manufacturing

Capital spending on semiconductor research and manufacturing capabilities continues.

Construction is continuing at Intel’s massive D1X development fab in Hillsboro, Ore. The multi-billion dollar facility is expected to come up on the company’s 14-nanometer process technology and will be the first 14nm factory in the world. The construction is part of Intel’s ongoing capital spending and investment in U.S. manufacturing.

Intel has invested billions of dollars at this site over the past several years where the company’s leading- edge silicon R&D teams define and develop the recipes for manufacturing Intel chips in other production factories around the world. Construction is expected to continue with yet another expansion targeted to support the company’s 450mm wafer technology.

When President Barack Obama visited Oregon for the D1X groundbreaking ceremony in 2011, Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini said the clean room will be the size of four football fields and that the project would generate 3,000 construction jobs over 2 years and require 19,000 tons of steel, 13,000 truckloads of cement and more than 40 miles of pipe.
