Intel Corporation develops technology that has enabled the computer and Internet revolutions which have changed the world. Founded in 1968 to build semiconductor memory products, Intel introduced the world's first microprocessor in 1971.
As an integral part of Intel's new Integrated Device Manufacturing (IDM) 2.0 model strategy, we establish Intel Foundry Services (IFS), a fully vertical, standalone foundry business, reporting directly to Intel's CEO. IFS will be a world-class foundry business and a major US and European-based capacity provider to serve customers globally. We differentiate IFS with a combination of leading-edge packaging and process technology, committed capacity in the US and Europe, plus a world-class IP portfolio including x86 cores, graphics, media, display, AI, interconnect, fabric, and other critical foundational IP, along with Arm and RISC-V ecosystem IPs.
IFS will also provide access to silicon design services to help our customers seamlessly turn silicon into solutions using industry-standard design packages. Intel dedicates IFS to the success of its customers with entire Profit and Loss responsibilities. This model will ensure that our foundry customers' products will receive our utmost focus in terms of service, technology enablement, and capacity commitments. IFS is already engaged with customers today, starting with our existing foundry offerings. We are expanding imminently to include our most advanced technologies optimized for cutting-edge performance, making them ideal for high-performance applications.
We are looking for a detail orientated student with outstanding communication skills and an independent learning style.
