Intel adds wireless line at Colorado plant

January 12, 2004 – Intel plans to spend $35 million over the next nine months to install a new chip manufacturing process at its plant in Colorado Springs, CO, according to local news sources.

The Gazette reports that the company will scale back flash chip output and upgrade the cleanroom at its Fab 23 facility in order to make wireless LAN chips for notebook computers, possibly follow-ons to the 855 wireless chipset already used with Intel’s Centrino technology.

Work at the site, purchased in 2000 from Rockwell International, is expected to be completed by 3Q04.
