Intel’s factories ready for manufacturing LG mobile chips

By : |August 17, 2016 0

As per latest news from Intel’s developer forum in San Francisco, Korea’s LG plans to make its own mobile chips — in Intel’s factories. It should be noted that LG earlier relied on processors from Qualcomm. But now, they plan to manufacture a new generation of homegrown mobile chips using Intel factories.

This comes to put an end to all the speculations around Intel’s attempt at mobile domination. Intel has entered into a new licensing agreement with rival ARM Holdings to produce 10-nanometre ARM chips. After this agreement, Intel will now provide other chipmakers to make ARM processors inside its factories.

This gives Intel an above hand over major players like Apple and Samsung. Samsung not only designs the processors but is also into vast chipmaking operations that make chips for Apple and Qualcomm. However, most of the phone operators rely on processors from Qualcomm or Chinese rivals.

If this thing works out, Korean phone maker LG will also benefit from Intel’s next-generation 10-nanometer manufacturing technology. It is a thinner version that will debut next year. Intel can now be able to deliver LG with the extra edge over Apple and China’s Huawei as they also have their own chip designs.

Intel also announced a couple of more production breakthroughs at the conference. Spreadtrum is designing on Intel’s 14 nm foundry platform. While, Achronix Semiconductor is in production on its Intel 22 nm Speedster 22i HD1000 networking silicon. Altera is also using Intel foundry platform to build the first true 14 nm FPGA.

Intel is all set to build the product experiences of tomorrow at the Intel foundry platform.
