On July 25, 2022, Semiconductor goliath Intel announced a strategic partnership with MediaTek to produce chips using Intel Foundry Services’ (IFS) advanced process technologies. MediaTek has already been catching the beat with manufacturing outperforming chips, and now this newly formed team would assist the company in building a more intricate supply chain through the newly developed Foundry partners with manufacturing a considerable amount of goods in the United States and Europe.
MediaTek shares this information through an official press release. The abstract clearly shows the futuristic plans of MediaTek to use Intel process technologies to mass produce various chips for several ranges of smart edge devices.
To gain momentum, IFS provides a broad manufacturing platform with innovations utterly meant to optimize high performance, low power, and always-on connectivity has been sketched on the blueprints that consist of production-proven three-dimensional FinFET transistors to next-generation breakthroughs.
NS Tsai, corporate senior vice president of Platform Technology & Manufacturing Operations at MediaTek, said, “MediaTek has long adopted a multi-sourcing strategy. We have an existing 5G data card business partnership with Intel and now extend our relationship to manufacturing smart edge devices through Intel Foundry Services.
With its commitment to major capacity expansions, IFS provides value to MediaTek as we seek to create a more diversified supply chain. We look forward to building a long-term partnership to serve the fast-growing demand for our products from customers across the globe.”
“As one of the world’s leading fabless chip designers powering more than 2 billion devices a year, MediaTek is a terrific partner for IFS as we enter our next phase of growth. We have the right combination of advanced process technology and geographically diverse capacity to help MediaTek deliver the next billion connected devices across a range of applications,”said IFS President Randhir Thakur IFS came to effect in 2021 to meet the rising global demand for advanced semiconductor manufacturing capacity.
