Intel begins outfitting its state of the art Irish production facility

As the global semiconductor shortage rolls on, chipmakers are taking steps to expand their production capabilities. Intel in particular is currently undertaking an ambitious expansion operation. The company’s $7B Fab 34 construction project in Leixlip, Ireland has entered the tool outfitting stage which represents a significant milestone on the way to beginning production in 2023. 

The machine is the first of around 1200 machines to be installed, many of which cost millions of dollars apiece. The specific machine is known as a lithography resist track. It’s a part of Intel’s extreme ultraviolet (EUV) manufacturing and will be used to produce chips made with the Intel 4 production node (a rough equivalent to 7nm).
