Intel Corp. has begun a $2 billion construction project to convert a 200mm wafer fabrication facility to a 300mm facility in Chandler, Arizona. The conversion of Fab 12 is scheduled to be completed in late 2005. The converted facility will begin initial production on 65nm process technology.

When completed, the converted Fab 12 will become Intel's fifth 300mm wafer facility. Five 300mm fabs provide the equivalent manufacturing capacity of about 10 200mm factories. Intel's other 300mm fabs are located in Hillsboro, Oregon (two facilities), Rio Rancho, N.M. and Leixlip, Ireland.

Bob Baker, Intel SVP and general manager, technology and manufacturing group, said, "The flexibility of our factory designs allows us to completely and efficiently modify the interior of the cleanroom to accommodate the much larger 300mm production equipment.
