Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger has talked a lot about foundries these past few weeks.
At Intel Innovation in September, Gelsinger said Intel Foundry Services (IFS) is ushering in the “systems foundry era.” Instead of just supplying wafers to customers, which is the traditional foundry model, Gelsinger said Intel offers silicon, packaging, software and chiplets.
“IFS will usher in the era of the systems foundry,” he said, “marking a paradigm shift as the focus moves from system-on-a-chip to system in a package.”
And last week, Gelsinger announced Intel would embrace an internal foundry model for its external customers and Intel product lines, calling the decision the “next phase of our IDM 2.0 journey.”
