Products Platforms The company offers platforms that incorporate various components and technologies, including a microprocessor and chipset, a stand-alone system-on-chip (SoC), or a multichip package. A platform might be enhanced by additional hardware, software, and services. A microprocessor—The central processing unit (CPU) of a computer system—processes system data and controls other devices in the system. The company offers microprocessors with one or multiple processor cores. In addition, its Intel Core processor families integrate graphics functionality onto the processor die. A chipset sends data between the microprocessor and input, display, and storage devices, such as the keyboard, mouse, monitor, hard drive or solid-state drive, and optical disc drives. Chipsets extend the audio, video, and other capabilities of many systems and perform essential logic functions, such as balancing the performance of the system and removing bottlenecks. The company offers and develops SoC products that integrate its CPUs with other system components, such as graphics, audio, imaging, communication and connectivity, and video, onto a single chip. SoC products enable ultra-mobile form factors, such as tablets, smartphones, Ultrabook devices, and 2 in 1 systems, as well as notebooks, desktops, data center products, and the Internet of Things. The company offers a multichip package that integrates the chipset on one die with the CPU and graphics on another die, connected via a lower-power, on-package interface. In 2014, the company introduced its 5th generation Intel Core processor, code-named ‘Broadwell’. The company also offers features designed to improve its platform capabilities. Intel vPro technology is a solution for manageability, security, and business user experiences in the notebook, desktop, and 2 in 1 systems market segments. The company also offers Intel Iris technology, which provides enhanced integrated graphics for its 4th and 5th generation Intel Core processors. In 2014, the company announced Intel RealSense technology, which includes software and depth cameras that enable more natural and intuitive interaction with personal computing devices. Research and Development The company’s research and development expenditures were $11.5 billion in 2014. Seasonality Historically, the company’s net revenue has been higher in the second half of the year than in the first half of the year, accelerating in the third quarter and peaking in the fourth quarter. Customers The company sells its products primarily to OEMs and ODMs. ODMs provide design and manufacturing services to branded and unbranded private-label resellers. In addition, the company sells its products to other manufacturers, including makers of a range of industrial and communications equipment. The company’s customers also include those who buy PC components and its other products through distributor, reseller, retail, and OEM channels throughout the world. In 2014, Hewlett-Packard Company (HP) accounted for 18% of its net revenue; Dell Inc. (Dell) accounted for 16% of its net revenue; and Lenovo Group Limited (Lenovo) accounted for 12% of its net revenue.
