Intel Ireland's Leixlip campus, located in County Kildare, began operations in 1989. Since then, Intel has invested over EUR 6 billion in turning the 360-acre former stud farm into the most technologically advanced industrial location in Europe.
Our semiconductor wafer fabrication facility produces the latest generation silicon microprocessors that power platforms and technology advancements which are essential to the way we learn, live and work today.
Fab 24 produces 300mm wafers using 65 nanometer and 90 nanometer process technologies, and is one of Intel's most technologically advanced, high-volume manufacturing plants in the world.
The advanced manufacturing capability at our Leixlip site is a key enabler for numerous R&D initiatives.
The Health Research and Innovation team Europe (HRIe) is focused on understanding ageing and how technology can be used to help older people remain independent. HRIe's work includes collaboration with the Technology Research for Independent Living (TRIL) Centre.
Our team that focuses on Silicon Nanoelectronics Research collaborates extensively with research institutes such as the CRANN Nanoscience Research Centre in Trinity College Dublin and the Tyndall National Research Institute in Cork. The team also collaborates with universities, other companies from across Ireland and Europe, and more than 50 PhD students (co-funded by Intel).
Our Innovation Open Lab (IOL) has global responsibility to research and develop innovative IT solutions and technology. The IOL is at the forefront of demonstrating how information technology and Intel products can continue to deliver new competitive advantage.
Intel Labs Europe (ILE), a part of IOL, coordinates innovation activity and future investments against an innovation agenda focused on enabling a digital Europe. Research is focused on areas such as advanced microprocessor research, high-performance computing, enterprise solutions and green computing.
In addition to our many benefits and programs, employees get a bunch of other perks! Here's some cool stuff that makes Intel in Leixlip a great place to work.
