Submission + - Intel to produce FPGA for Altera using 14nm (taipeitimes.com)

Taco Cowboy writes: Faced with declining demand for its high-margin microprocessor products in PCs and laptops, Intel is opening up its advance fabs to produce chips for other vendors

Intel will build FPGAs, or field programmable gate arrays, for San Jose, California-based Altera when the two chipmakers move to 14-nanometer (nm) production technology

According to analysts, the move may therefore inaugurate a shift by Intel into the high-end foundry business hitherto dominated by TSMC, IBM, Samsung and, most recently, the Globalfoundries business spun-out of Intel's great rival AMD
