Intel 14 nm gate patterning requires 2 PSMs and two trims, that's four exposures right there.

It's good to see a profitable company moving forward. Although it's funny, I did not see anyone mention that Intel is basically forced to build advanced FABs in the U.S. because they are restricted due to US export control regulations. Just a few years ago (less than 3yrs ago), no technology smaller than 65nm could be sent outside the US by a US company. Companies based in other countries of course could develop the technology on their own (i.e. Samsung, TSMC, etc.). In some sense, the US govt is at least trying to force the retention of high tech workers within the US.

I have read this news in connection with the announcement of Paul Otellini's plan to add more jobs and spend money. The extra news is that the fab will be for the 14nm node, which will come around 2020 according to ITRS roadmap. We are in 2011, so will the job addition take place in this span of 10 years?

@RobDinsmore, i think you have quite a bad prejudice about Indian that they go after bad jobs [read foreign]. There are enough good opportunities for Indians in India and more are coming, yes my friend. Any do not blame Indians for your laziness, incompetents and "all support and nothing interesting" attitude towards work. No job are bad, only bad (whiners) workers and employees.

Question for Mark Lapedus : Care to guess what type of chips Intel will make at this new 14 nm Fab ?

Phoenixdave: Your statement about Intel laying off process engineers at their fab ( Ocotillo ? ) in favor of PhDs imported from India sounds "phoney". To the best of my knowledge there are no semiconductor mfg industry ( beyond 1 um ! ) or related academic programs in India. But Taiwan or So. Korea - for sure. Or are you perhaps confusing between Software ( for which India is a major supplier of cheap manpower ) and Solid State Physics and engaging in ad hominem attacks ?

What really happens is it is decided the California fab like D2 is not worth upgrading to 300mm due to cost, and a cheaper location is sought like Oregon, Arizona, etc. The workers in the closing factory are given some time to look for jobs internally but only the new fab can accommodate so many at once. If they cannot relocate, they can be given a package.

As far as technology goes, I am not surprised that Intel is leading the way in the advanced technology development. This has been heir history for quite some time. They are becoming a rarity in the industry, with many other companies pushing toward a fabless operational strategy. The impending opening of Globalfoundries and the existing foundries will continue this trend. Intel seems to have the deep pockets and internal talent to be successful with their strategy, so however they accomplish this internally, they have to be applauded for their success to date.
