The Saturday Video: Watch the Intel Chip Being Made

By July 16, 2005Cool Stuff Being Made

The star of today’s show is Jorge Areballo of Intel, a silicon chip maker. He says each chip sells for $100,000, slightly more than, say the chips made over at Lay’s. This show is a bit like last week’s in that it’s as much about how cool a career in manufacturing can be, but it’s kinda neat to see this whole chip-making clean room process. Funny thing is, they’re dressed like Lou Dobbs in the photo below. But they’re not xenophobic.

By the way, we should mention that a bunch of member companies are working on getting us videos — or have already sent them — of their processes, so there will be more cool stuff to follow in the weeks ahead. Thanks to all of you who have sent in videos — well get ’em posted on some future Saturday, not to worry.
