Acquired in May 1998, the Hudson campus is a key contributor to a strong and growing manufacturing, research and development presence for Intel throughout the East Coast. Sitting atop a hill and featuring a breathtaking 10-mile view of the surrounding area, the 149-acre Hudson site includes 1.3 million square feet of building space, including a 95,000 square foot state-of-art semiconductor-manufacturing facility.
Hudson is the latest manufacturing facility to produce Intel's world-class microprocessors using 0.13-micron process technology. The copper-based, 0.13-micron process builds the world's fastest transistors currently in production, providing the basis for fast microprocessors, including the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor. The process can build circuits so small that it would take roughly 1,000 of them to equal the thickness of a human hair.
As Hudson expands volume manufacturing of advanced microprocessors, the site continues to build and support Intel® IXP1200 network processors, microprocessors for handheld computing and other products.
Intel Massachusetts is also home to both the Massachusetts Development Center in Hudson, and the Massachusetts Microprocessor Development Center, located in nearby Shrewsbury. The Massachusetts Development Center employs more than 400 engineers and software developers focused on developing and marketing industry-leading innovations, including Intel's Internet Exchange Architecture, DSL modems, handheld computing solutions, software development tools and more. The Massachusetts Microprocessor Development Center is an engineering group focused on microprocessor design and development.
