I had heard from an Intel engineer that there is so little labor in a chip that skills, experience and infrastructure are more important than wage rates. I also get the impression that Intel invests in plants with an eye on the long run. Political and social risk is large (over the long term) in any country that is going through rapid socioeconomic changes. It makes sense to gain experience in China, but not to move everything to that jurisdiction.

Intel is in hot water with Fab 68. It either has to sell it or be politically incorrect by converting to 45 nm HKMG. Or maybe direct to 32 nm makes more sense. Even low end Chinese chips are moving beyond 65 nm.

Intel already have 45nm and 32 nm technology. Agree..65nm is not the latest techno.

The most interesting question to me is, "what 65 nm ICs will Intel build in this fab?" I mean really, 65 nm is old school at this point.

I vote for the Oregon Development Fab. It is 450 mm ready and changes and ends the economic for everyone. The question in my mind is when will Intel convert older 32 nm lines to serve outside customers. Intel could easily become a major player in Foundries, it only needs a business goal. The China Fab lowers their cost for older technologies without having to go to a Foundry; thus the first Fab of Intel's Foundry Business just went live in China! 5 yrs from now, Intel will be a major player in the Foundry space.

OK. So Intel opened a fab in China. What's the big deal? Or is it? What's a bigger deal? Intel's new U.S. fab or the China fab? I vote the China fab. Others out there?

'love your neighbor as yourself' I bet your community church pastor could enlight you. In your case, you need to love the chinese/indians etc as yourself/or americans. If chinese get rich, get tech etc. you should feel just like you are getting rich. Your trouble and your confusion comes since you lack such kind of wisdom. It time for you to grow a little on this, it's called touch of holy spirit. yeah, you need some holy spirit.

Yes, I think if they learn the 45 nm HKMG, that is the end. That is the point of the Wassenaar Arrangement.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
