Intel News

Intel is widely recognized as the largest chip maker in the world, coming to prominence during the 1980s when the PC was ramping up. Today it is a $43 billion business with a stranglehold on PC processor chips and a dominant share in large server chips. It has tried, so far unsuccessfully to take the same position in the cellular world, and sold off its Xscale ARM Core based system to Marvel in 2006. Intel has since acquired the wireless arm of Infineon in 2010, a European chip maker which spun out of the German Siemens group. Intel has had a long love affair with radio technologies and portable devices, taking in the creation of its own Centrino Wi-Fi architecture, the sponsorship of WiMAX, and the MeeGo operating system it developed for phones and tablets with Nokia – none of which have yet served to give it a large chip footprint in mobile devices.
