Article Title Intel to make 22-nm chips for Microsemi
Content:

Intel will build ICs and SoCs for Microsemi using its 22-nm FinFET process, Microsemi said Wednesday (May 1). 

The foundry deal, signed in January, has allowed Microsemi to engage with customers and begin designs utilizing Intel's 22-nm process technology with product delivery expected to begin in late 2014 or early 2015, Microsemi (Aliso Viejo, Calif.) said. 

Microsemi—which offers a broad range of chips for communications, defense, aerospace and industrial markets—becomes Intel's fifth publicly disclosed foundry customer, joining network processor provider Netronome and FPGA vendors Altera, Achronix and Tabula. 

Intel reportedly has several more undisclosed foundry customers. Unconfirmed reports have said Intel could be making 22-nm ASICs for Cisco. Others said the PC chip giant may be working on a deal to make mobile processors for Apple, which is trying to reduce its foundry dependence on archrival Samsung.
