Intel Buys 15 Percent of ASML PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 10 July 2012
Intel can’t be the biggest semiconductor player, if they don’t spend a considerable amount of money expanding their business operation. In fact, Chipzilla has just recently purchased 15 percent stake in ASML, in which the acquisition would cost Intel a whopping $4.1 billion.

Generally, the purchase would increase Intel’s lead in the semiconductor industry, and Intel plans to increase their manufacturing efficiency, through faster production. Apparently, Intel is in the process of restructuring their chip manufacturing process, whereby they plan to use bigger diameter silicon wafers that would ultimately be used for the Ivy Bridge and ValleyView processors in the future. And with larger wafers, this means Intel can churn out more processors per wafer, thus decreasing their production time for manufacturing the microprocessors.
