As an Israeli, I take umbrage at that. Israel is not at all unstable. have you ever been? In fact, it's the tech haven of the middle east with some of the world's brightest engineers. The Technion, known to be one of the best engineering universities in the world (and sistered with MIT) is in Haifa and has produced some of the best tech execs today. Also, Israel's GDP growth is astounding, our currency is far more stable than Europe's (or the US' for that matter), and our workforce is skilled, and cheap. So.... what was your objection again?

Humm! Intel really has great influence on the world economy! Wherever Intel puts its money in, the economy and long term development of that place will be affected much. It then seems to be a political decision rather than a solely monetary one.

As the article says, Intel has been in Israel since '64 and they have a solid source of engineering talent there to run the factories. Most of Intel's fabs are already in the US -- Oregon, Arizona, New Mexico. And they're building 2 new fabs here right now.

Intel is already building new multi-billion plants in Oregon, Arizona and New Mexico. Haven't you been paying attention ? Most of their fabs are here. They have more employees in Oregon (18,000) then anywhere else in the world. But they're a global corporation with most of their sales now outside of the US. One of the things Intel has been concerned about is a shortage of engineers in the US. You need a lot to run high tech factories. Israel has a good source as well.

Why build it in Israel, Ireland, or the UK? Why not here in the US? US economy is in desperate need of job creation. Israeli or Irish wages aren't that far off from US wages, so the cheap-labor excuse cannot be invoqued Here. Intel, a US company, should build its cutting-edge Fab right here in the US.

Pressuring Intel? WOW! Looks like chances for Ireland open up. Economy there is struggling and they may offer much better incentives to keep Intel investing in Fab 24 upgrades.

I am just speculating, as I have no "inside" information, but Intel has had a presence in Israel for many years. Top Intel executives Mooly Eden and Dadi Perlmutter among others are from Israel. So it's not too hard to imagine that their past experience and an internal Israel lobby might influence their decision. A company as large as Intel needs diverse manufacturing locations for many reasons - from geopolitical to general risk mitigation.

Build a FAB in a war zone or Oregon? Hmm, tough decision.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

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.
