Intel used their ARM license for XScale which was successful in phones (ironically more so than Atom is today). And I don't see Apple, QC or NVidia drop their ARM designs for x86 - even if competitive. There are advantages to creating your own designs rather than being at the whim of a single supplier.

Good question. Intel did try with XScale - the fastest ARM at the time. One reason for its failure was that they only made CPUs, not SoCs. If they gave up on trying to shoehorn x86 in the mobile space (while holding back at the same time to avoid cannibalizing their main market), and instead went all-out on ARM then they could well become ARM manufacturer #1.

At the bottom of page 1: "It is not Intel's objective to become a general foundry service provider," said Len Jelinek, a chief analyst at IHS iSuppli. Rather it aims "to select a few high volume [foundry] clients [that] provide Intel with an additional revenue stream to help defer the cost of its advanced manufacturing capability," he said.

Altera's a bit crazy to do this, there's not even any 14 nm published data yet, even from Intel.

Altera has no good options. Altera is loosing leading edge to Xilinx at 28nm

Intel also missing an interposer strategy here.

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,...
