@peter Do you think there are other factors as well which made Intel choose Ireland over Israel ?

There was a story on job creation as a bargaining chip on PBS radio recently. They concentrated on the Ford labor negotiations, but the larger point was that companies have all the leverage in those discussions. Globalization has handed them the keys to a disconcerting amount of power over governments. Larry M.

Ok, thanks for clarifying. So does this mean Ireland offered about the full 600 million?

If US government is struggling in job creation, would an American shift of Intel's plan help? Just wondering...

I think Intel was asking Israel for $600 million towards an estimated total cost of $2.7 billion for a second fab module at Kiryat Gat. That is about 22 percent which is about the normal amount of incentive. But Israel offered $290 million of which only half was for Kiryat Gat and the rest was for a chip assembly plant in the north of the country.

Interesting... I wonder how much China will give to have an Intel plant...

600 million doesn't sound like it can cover a major expansion. I'd think 3 billion at least would be needed.

Ireland does not collect, literally, corporate tax. Also, they have a cluster of hi-tech firms that Intel can tap or poke their staff

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
