Made in the USA: Intel to build world’s smallest chips in Arizona desert

Fox News | Jan 24, 2012

Intel is building the world’s most advanced, high volume chip fabrication plant in the Arizona desert — even as most of our electronics are produced overseas.

At a whopping cost of about $5 billion, “Fab 42” is scheduled to be completed in 2013 and will be set up to produce chips with parts only 14 nanometers wide, the Financial Times reported — close to the thickness of cellular walls. A human hair is about 100,000 nanometers.
