Machine at Intel’s Hillsboro campus can produce chips so advanced, they don’t yet exist

Engineers and developers at Intel are always working to push the boundaries of what’s possible, leaning on Moore’s Law — the idea that the number of transistors on a single chip will double every two years with a minimal increase in cost.

But over the last five years, Intel has had its ups and downs, demonstrated by the wavering value of its stock. It went from a high of $68 per share to more recently trading at $36 per share.

By investing $100 billion in American factories and innovation, the company hopes to turn that trend around. In late March, the company learned that it had secured $8.5 billion from the Biden administration, paired with another $11 billion in loans, with the goal of bringing chip manufacturing back to the U.S.
