Buy Stocks ASML, Ready to Compete with Intel's dominance in the ARM Mobile Domains




In order to accelerate the process of production of the latest generation of chips, Intel is willing to invest over $ 4 billion fund to buy 15 percent stake in ASML, a manufacturer of chip-making machine from the Netherlands.

Intel will acquire 10 percent stake first, and subsequent 5 percent will be obtained if the proposal is approved by the shareholders with a value of $ 3.1 billion. Intel is also still going to invest $ 1 billion extra for the research of processing technologies 'wafer' (slices of semiconductor material) and extreme ultraviolet lithography 450mm.

Analysts predict that Intel will be able to save $ 2 billion per year by using the technology 'wafer' 450mm, 300mm compared to the commonly used today. Wafer that is wider will be able to save on production costs because of the number of slices that can be produced also will be more. Such a transition is recorded can provide savings of 30 to 40 percent of the cost of the mold.

For extreme ultraviolet lithography technology (Eul), in theory be able to allow more number of transistors in each square mm. Use of production techniques plus 450mm Eul predicted would become a standard technology in this decade. Intel also will be one chip manufacturers are still loyal to manufacture the chip through their own factory, not via outsourcing methods such as those adopted by Qualcomm for example.

This collaboration will ensure the position of ASML as the forefront of the latest generation of chip production, as well as encourage the growth of the company to continue forward in developing this technology.
