Marvell Semiconductor is now close to migrating XScale microprocessor production to preferred foundry partner TSMC, resulting in Intel's closing of its 200mm fab in Colorado sometime in August, 2007 with the loss of approximately 800 jobs.

Marvell had previously stated at the time of the XScale business portfolio from Intel for US$600 million a year ago that supply from Intel would be wound down and all products transferred to TSMC.

Intel is expected to attempt to sell the Colorado Springs fab separately as part of a strategy to migrate away from legacy 200mm production facilities.
