Luck O' the Irish! ;) It didn't seem many years ago when the term "sub-micron" was used. And now we are working on 14nm...

"Outsourcing" makes it sound like intel Ireland is not part of intel Corp (not true). That being said 14nm is already slated for 2 US fabs...

I understand outsourcing, but I'm not sure i understand why this would go to Ireland and not the US or Asia.

Yes, my other impression was that Ireland had tough breaks in previous bids for 22 nm, 32 nm, and 45 nm, losing to Israel and US sites. And IIRC, they were downsized? So maybe now, there can be hirebacks.

1 billion US$ is a very huge amount Intel has invested in Ireland. It is a great luck for the people of Ireland that they will be able to participate in Research and Development with a great company.

It's just talk resistion. By then things could change of course.

Not sure the Irish Government can do a lot on this front these days :-) It's a logical decision considering the alternatives. They needed the fab to be in Europe and Ireland is the logical conclusion given their existing infrastucture there.

Previously, the new fabs were viewed one node at a time, like just 32 nm, or just 22 nm. How can you plan its use for N+2, when the modules have not even been defined yet.

I am not sure how you draw the conclusion about equipment changes. To me it merely means that these factories will be used to produce silicon at 14-nm and node(s) beyond 14-nm, such as 11-nm.

The government and the Industrial Development Agency offer competitive financial and tax incentives.Also quality educated people are there. So Intel is in Ireland.
