Intel has scored a second foundry deal. Earlier this month we heard that Achronix will use Intel's 22nm process to manufacture FPGA products and this week it was revealed that Intel will make 200mm wafers for Lilliputian, a fuel cell maker that recently received funding from Intel Capital.
Intel will manufacture and supply production wafers for Lilliputian. This is critical in the production of all of Lilliputian Systems’ product lines, most importantly its first product-the so-called USB Mobile Power System.
Wafer manufacturing will be conducted at Intel’s 200-mm facility in Hudson, Mass. Activities to support this manufacturing will commence immediately. The Intel Capital's undisclosed equity stake in Lilliputian Systems helps ensure that resources for volume manufacturing are in place.
