Intel has suspended its second fab upgrade in a week.

Having put a $2 billion expansion of its Leixlip, Ireland fab on hold until 2003, Chipzilla has canned a $500 million upgrade programme at its Hudson, Massachusetts plant, aka Fab 17.

Two parallel upgrades, costing $1 billion, at the same fab will continue. They will allow the plant to increase 0.18 micron production and introduce 0.13 micron production. ®
