Fort Collins is home to an Intel Design Center
Innovating in Colorado
Intel Colorado has approximately 600 employees in two locations: Fort Collins and Longmont. At the Fort Collins Design Center (FCDC), established in 2005, engineers develop and deliver analog and digital IP as well as SoCs. These designs are utilized in markets such as Intel® Atom™ and Intel® Xeon™ based servers, high performance computing (HPC), the Internet of Things (IoT), Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), and wireless base station/cell towers. Intel Fort Collins also has a core competency in software development for tools, flows, and methodologies both locally and through Intel's Product Development Solutions group which provides CAD tool solutions for all silicon development at Intel. Employees at Intel’s Longmont campus focus on firmware for solid-state disk drives.
Intel’s donations in Colorado totaled $1.25 million in 2015. The company is a proud supporter of Colorado education, with over $918,000 of donations going to schools and education programs, including K-12 engineering and math initiatives, science fairs, and robotics events.
Through the Intel Involved Matching Grant Program (IIMGP), the Intel Foundation extends the impact of employees’ volunteerism by donating cash to each qualified nonprofit and school where Intel employees and retirees volunteer 20 hours or more in a year.
Intel in the Community
Intel Colorado is committed to making a difference in the community. Through the Intel® Involved Matching Grants Program, which matches volunteer hours with cash grants, Intel Colorado helped fund projects at local schools and nonprofit organizations. Employees at our Fort Collins Design Center and Longmont facility reported more than 5,500 hours of volunteer work in their local communities, boasting a 32% increase in participation. For their efforts, Intel donated over USD 36,000 in matching grant funds to 16 qualifying, non-profits in the community in 2015.
Throughout the year, Intel volunteers supported the High Plains Environmental Center, Habitat for Humanity, robotics competitions, blood drives, food drives, school supply drives, Adopt-A-Senior, and more.
