Intel today celebrated the grand opening of the latest expansion of D1X, its leading-edge factory in Hillsboro, Oregon. In a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by senior government officials and community leaders, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger highlighted the company's positive impact in Oregon and reiterated its commitment to U.S. leadership in semiconductor research and development (R&D). In honor of the site's heritage of innovation, Intel also announced a new name for the nearly 500-acre campus: Gordon Moore Park at Ronler Acres. The new name recognizes the site's unique contributions to driving Moore's Law, Intel co-founder Gordon Moore's 1965 prediction that has guided innovation in the semiconductor industry for more than 50 years.
"Since its founding, Intel has been devoted to relentlessly advancing Moore's Law. This new factory space will bolster our ability to deliver the accelerated process roadmap required to support our bold IDM 2.0 strategy. Oregon is the longtime heart of our global semiconductor R&D, and I can think of no better way to honor Gordon Moore's legacy than by bestowing his name on this campus, which, like him, has had such a tremendous role in advancing our industry," said Pat Gelsinger, Intel CEO.
