"As a member of the QAT design team, you will work as the RTL integration lead within the Custom Logic ASIC Engineering group in DCG [Data Center Group]," the job description at Intel's website (found by @Komachi_Ensaka) reads. "You will play a key role in the development and integration of QAT into Atom & Xeon based SoC on Intel and TSMC process, you will work with the IP/SoC integration team and collaborate with the SoC design, validation and emulation teams to ensure successful integration validation of the QAT IP."There aren't a lot of details so it's unknown which TSMC nodes Intel will use. Tom's Hardware assumes it iwll be N5-class nodes for performance-demanding chips and N6 for cost-sensitive products. Intel used to be the global leader in semiconductor manufacturing but it has lost its edge as the transition to 10nm (as well as the future transition to 7nm) faced delays of multiple years.
Intel tapping TSMC for Atom and Xeon-based SoCs?
