Intel spokesman Bill Kircos told the Wall Street Journal that this production would account for less than 1 percent of Intel’s production capacity on the new process. Kircos also said that this could be the start of Intel making chips for more companies as well as Achronix.

Achronix Semiconductor are a privately held fabless corporation based in San Jose, California. Achronix builds the world’s fastest field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) which use a unique patented circuit technology, providing 1.5 GHz throughput, a significant performance advantage over traditional FPGA technology.
