Intel (INTC) has bagged Altera (ALTR) as a chip foundry client. Altera, which has a near-duopoly on the FPGA market in tandem with Xilinx (XLNX), has hired Intel to make FPGAs using the latter's next-gen 14nm manufacturing process and 3D transistor tech. Altera says it will still rely on its existing foundry partner, TSMC (TSM), to make 20nm and older-process chips. The deal comes a month after reports Intel had struck a foundry deal with Cisco. ALTR +2.1% AH. XLNX -0.8%. INTC +0.5%. TSM +0.9% after falling 3.4% in regular trading.
