全球面臨晶片短缺問題,但汽車業界似乎看到曙光,因為 Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger 在與 Reuters 的訪談中提到,他們正與車用晶片設計公司洽談,利用 Intel 的廠房來生產相關產品,最快能在 6 至 9 個月內投產。

Gelsinger 表示,他們希望能好好善用現有的生產線來減輕晶片短缺的情況,而且已經開始與一些主要原料供應商接觸。未知 Intel 已經在跟哪些車廠談合作,但有透露會利用他們位於俄勒岡、亞利桑那、新墨西哥、以色列和愛爾蘭的廠房。

是說,這個車用晶片生產計劃是與 Intel 早前宣佈為其他晶片設計商代工生產晶片的 200 億美元投資計劃獨立分開的。會有如此提案,其實是 Gelsinger 曾與美國總統拜登會面,談及如何處理自二月開始出現的晶片荒,而相對的,白宮會推動透過國會投放 500 億美元到半導體研究和生產領域。
