Deepak Sekar: Interesting analysis and thanks for this plug: "Like many semiconductor enthusiasts, my day begins with a look at EETimes."

elPresidente: Glad you set the record straight. NYS has had a welcoming committee to invest in update New York around the Albany SUNY campus for a long time. Many companies have done nano research on the campus and its nanotech center. What's new is Intel's participation in the 450-mm wafer project with partners. Even Intel is lost in getting the needed yields out of pizza-pie sized wafers and needs help from others.

Hi folks, I wrote a blog post on this subject recently... below are details: Title: Can 450mm decommoditize the semiconductor industry? Abstract: Is the transition from 300mm to 450mm wafers just driven by 20-30% cost reduction? Or is there more to it than meets the eye? Let's take a look... Link: http://www.monolithic3d.com/2/post/2011/10/can-450mm-decommoditize-the-semiconductor-industry.html Check it out if you get a chance... and let me know what you think.

You really are clueless. There's nothing "new" about the location - IBM's fab has been around for DECADES and is not in New York CITY as you seem to think. It's in a very beautiful hilly part of the state. Also, look up "Cornell University" and "Columbia University" before you diss the education levels there.

Well, new silicon valley at east cost? Especially in a city where trillions of problems to face daily. i really wonder how these companies will be able to find workers. Why silicon valley at CA worked out cause of brilliant universities located around and genius people who was eager to move there. With NY despite tax breaks, state incentives, its quite blur how it would work out, and who would like to move there?

Bad news for tech, politics, and culture and the civil society. NY state has gone beyond the point of moral decency and continues to fall into the leftist abyss. This doesn't pass the 'smell' test... Cronyism between Ortinelli and Cuomo? Anti Christian agenda? I call for boycott on INTC and IBM. http://patriotupdate.com/12822/ny-panel-wants-taxpayers-to-foot-bill-for-sex-change

In fact, it is good news on more than one front: the jobs and rise in the economy, of course. (On Wall Street, one saying is "a rising tide floats all boats".) The other is that it would be an increasingly rare example of the government doing what it should do: grease the skids, that is, enable companies to do business that might otherwise be uneconomic due to initial conditions. Government doesn't create jobs (other than civil service): Intel and IBM will do the creating. Government does the jump start and then gets out of the way. I hope...

Great news, just if these kind deals can be struck with many other corporations through out the continental USA, maybe then the economy would really turn in to more positive territory.

Interesting that SEMATECH, who relocated to Albany, who started the 450 mm initiative, is absent from this release. Do they no longer have a role?

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
