I believe the author said "defer the cost" when he meant "defray"

IDM based Foundry usually leave concerns to customers(could be competitors also). For Intel, there is IP conflict ahead. It also would take a while for Intel to fit into customers' specific requests or customers fit into Intel's specific offerings.

@resistion: i'm not sure intel is competitive at lower nodes(or else it would have offered them by now). But if intel does find a way to compete at older nodes, it could really hurt tsmc who made most of revenues/profits from older nodes.

If someone had asked who the next company Intel would be building 22nm chips for, I never would have guessed Microsemi.

Suppose I were a fabless but I preferred to wait on the new 22 nm technology. Could Intel do 32 nm or 45 nm for me?

It seems like the current Intel plan is to do both. Maybe they see it as a good way to leverage their R&D and capital outlays as well as a strategy to balance/utilize fab capacity.

Intel as well as AMD used trailing /depreciated capacity to make NOR flash . AMD spun off Spansion and I believe Intel sold NOR to MU. No reason why Intel can not apply this strategy to the foundry biz - Intel already has mature yields on 22nm TriGate while TSMC et al are scrambling to provide their FinFet solutions to market. My guess is there will an Intel foundry business unit emerging that will be focused on winning NON ARM foundry business - business that won't compromise Intel's core business

It could be an admission by Intel that they can no longer find plentiful OEM customers for their chips. In the SoC era, just being excellent in the CPU is not enough.

I think intel would be better off if they spent time, effort and money building capacity for Intel branded market leading products then being a contract manufacturer with much lower margins.

22 nm foundry volume doesn't seem negligible yet when will they stop taking orders.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
