Intel has signed Taiwan’s MediaTek to use its foundry services to make wireless and media chips.

MediaTek has relied on TSMC for much of its output up until now. Intel said the agreement with Mediatek was designed to help it build a more balanced, resilient supply chain through the addition of a foundry partner with significant capacity in the United States and Europe.

MediaTek is set to use Intel process technologies to manufacture chips for edge devices. Details of which manufacturing process nodes MediaTek would use and when were not given.

“As one of the world’s leading fabless chip designers powering more than 2 billion devices a year, MediaTek is a terrific partner for IFS as we enter our next phase of growth,” said Intel Foundry Services president Randhir Thakur. “We have the right combination of advanced process technology and geographically diverse capacity to help MediaTek deliver the next billion connected devices across a range of applications.”

MediaTek already has a 5G datacard business partnership with Intel.;
