Intel has to learn how to avoid IP cross-contamination, as it's just getting started in the foundry business.

Rikhi discussed at a high level Intel's approach to keeping its product IP separate from that of its customers. He seemed pretty practical in his attitude about knowing the company needs to build credibility as a foundry.

If Intel serves company A and company B, it cannot even accidentally pass along information about company A's designs to B or vice versa. Generally, this means each company's business account at Intel should be staffed by different individuals who are forbidden to interact.

Making competing products

The Panasonic deal is the first where Intel will make for a foundry customer a product that could compete with its own processors.

This is a big change and part of what came with the new CEO Brian Krzanich.

This is a big issue for Intel actually. Other foundries (except Samsung) don't make their own SoCs. So the SoC customer has to treat Intel like Samsung rather than Globalfoundries or TSMC.

Intel's SW side has a lot of experience with handling IP

Intel is used to dealing with Apple, Google, Microsoft, as well as all of the PC OEM's that are competitors. I'm sure that their experience is being leveraged with respect to staffing to prevent IP contamination in the custom foundry business. I think whether or not Intel is a competitor is relatively minor..
