Intel’s ‘IDM 2.0’ Strategy Defined in 60 Seconds

Intel has always been an integrated device manufacturer. In 2021, the company expanded its plans and capabilities.

Since Intel’s founding in 1968, it has been an integrated device manufacturer, or IDM. That’s a company that both designs and builds its own semiconductor chips.

In March, CEO Pat Gelsinger introduced “IDM 2.0,” a major evolution of that strategy. Intel’s new IDM model includes significant manufacturing expansions, plans for Intel to become a major provider of foundry capacity in the U.S. and Europe to serve customers globally, and expansion of Intel’s use of external foundries for some of its products.
