Intel Corporation which is an acronym for “INTegrated circuits” and “ELectronics” was founded in 1968.


It was started by Gordon Moore and Robert Noyce and is currently headquartered in Santa Clara, California, United States.

This American company employs around 107,300 people. Some of the computer hardware product profiles of this company include Bluetooth chipsets, flash memory, microprocessors, motherboard chipsets, Network interface controllers, mobile phones, solid state drives and central processing units. The business units which contributed to 2015’s revenue are Client Computing Group - 58%; Data Centre Group - 29%; Internet of Things Group - 4%; Software and Services - 4% and others - 5%. When it comes to semiconductors, Intel leads the market with a fascinating market share of around 15% globally. Intel’s new targeted growth areas for the year 2016 are cloud and data center, IoT (Internet of Things), memory and programmable solutions. This goes on to explain that Intel is shifting its priority from PC division to the above mentioned areas.

ON the onset of technologies like FPGAs, Rack Scale Architecture and 3D XPoint memory, Intel seems to capitalize on aspects like faster storage and co processes in the memory and programmable solutions divisions. Intel is also eyeing next generation platforms like 5G and connectivity in the field of mobility. Due to these changes happening around the place, it’s only fair that the company is moving towards a cross-platform campaigning that explains how the brand moved away from being a chip manufacturer to a company which creates “amazing human experiences.” Some of the recent acquisitions of the company includes Unarmed Aerial Vehicles firm Ascending Technologies, Video technology firm Replay Technologies and IoT security and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Company Yogitech.
