From the azcentral article “Intel to build $300 million research facility in Chandler“
Construction already is under way on the 285,000-square-foot research facility at Intel’s Chandler campus, northwest of Rural Road and Chandler Boulevard.
The construction project will employ nearly 1,000 workers and is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2013, Intel officials said.
Intel Vice President and Director of Assembly and Test Technology Development Babak Sabi said the new facility would be used for “package development.”
“Package” refers to the housing around a microchip used to connect the chip to a computer board, Sabi said.
