Microsemi Corporation (Nasdaq: MSCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, today announced it is leveraging Intel Corporation's (Nasdaq: INTC) industry-leading, onshore foundry technology for the development of advanced high-performance digital integrated circuits (ICs) and system-on-chip (SoC) solutions using Intel's revolutionary 22 nanometer (nm) 3-D Tri-Gate transistor technology.
Consistent with Microsemi's strategy, this agreement signed in January 2013 will leverage the company's comprehensive technology portfolio into higher-performance, higher-dollar value opportunities. Intel's Tri-Gate transistors provide an unprecedented combination of performance and power efficiency, enabling Microsemi to develop digital ICs for high-performance computing, network acceleration and signal processing applications. Microsemi is currently engaged with customers and has started designs utilizing Intel's 22nm process node with product delivery anticipated to begin in late 2014 to early 2015.
"The high-value applications we address require semiconductor solutions with unique performance and complex functional attributes," said Paul Pickle, executive vice president of Microsemi's Integrated Circuits group. "Using Intel's innovative process technology and silicon-proven IP will enable us to expand our opportunity in the markets we serve with higher-performance, lower-power digital ICs for the communications and defense markets."
"Intel is pleased to manufacture Microsemi's digital IC solutions utilizing Intel's leading 22nm process technology and IP solutions," said Sunit Rikhi, vice president, Technology and Manufacturing Group, Intel.
Pity those idiots who bght ARMH puts at 44.00 and didn't sell them at armh 40.00, BEFORE it ran 20 percent higher, crushingly outperforming INTC along the way. Wally maintains his record of letting profits turn into losses such as utter failure to sell INTC at 29.00 for it's "dip" to 19.00. No bigger Intc shill than the infamous Waldo Weaver.
