Intel turns to Colorado this time, opens design center

For the first time in a long time, a global chipmaker has decided to open a design center not located in India.

Intel Corp. inaugurated a microprocessor design in Colorado after nearly two years of revamping an existing building. The new facility will employ 300 workers, and is located adjacent to AMD Inc.'s "Mile-High Design Center."

The development facility is intended to confirm Intel's continuing commitment to Colorado after it closed a CMOS fab in Colorado Springs. Fort Collins was previously the site of a joint Intel-Hewlett-Packard effort that designed the Itanium microprocessor.

While HP has largely exited microprocessor design since Intel acquired its design business in 2005, the company's design team here harks back to development of the PA-RISC architecture in the early 1990s.
