Intel's innovative board shortage solution brought it to $ 2 billion in 2021

Intel’s Vietnam Assembly and Test (VNAT) plant made significant changes last year. The “innovative approach to substrate processing” in Vietnam allowed Intel to produce millions of additional products, but competitors were under pressure from supply constraints. The impact on the balance sheet is impressive. VNAT outperforms Intel’s revenues by more than $ 2 billion and is estimated to have helped the company better meet customer demand during difficult times.

This week, Intel thanked everyone on the Vietnamese site for their contributions and celebrated the success of the vertically integrated business model.

An important change made at VNAT was to reserve factory floor space to mount all the required capacitors on the chip board material. An investment has been made to purchase and train the machines needed for this preparatory but essential step in manufacturing the finished computer chip.
