Intel Chief Engineering Officer Departs Company; Technical Group To Be Reorganised

Production and cleanroom facilities at work in Intel’s D1D  D1X plant in Hillsboro

The news caused Intel shares to fall sharply when it announced earnings last week.

Intel on Monday announced a series of key organizational changes to its technology unit, which will include the departure of the group's engineering head. With Renduchintala on the way out, the semiconductor maker also announced that it will also be compartmentalising his technology group into five teams, while also reorganising its technology, systems architecture, and client group.

The Santa Clara, Calif. -based company said Renduchintala, whose responsibilities include process technologies like 7nm and manufacturing operations, will leave on August 3.

According to Intel this will "accelerate product leadership and improve focus and accountability in process technology execution". Prior to his appointment at Intel, he served as the executive vice president at Qualcomm.

The change comes as Intel reels from production woes that led to a delay of its next generation processors, stunning Wall Street and causing its stock to plummet.

Renduchintala, who was president of the wide-ranging group before its reorganization and widely seen as a No. 2 to Swan, joined Intel in 2015.

According to the analyst Intel is a company in major upheaval and not at all in control of benefiting from industry transitions, much less its own process and architectural roadmaps. He will now lead global manufacturing operations and continue Kelleher's work, including the build-out of new fab capacity.

The Architecture, Software and Graphics and Supply Chain groups, on the other hand, will continue to be led by Raja Koduri and Randhir Thakur, respectively.

"We have identified a defect mode in our 7nm process that resulted in yield degradation. We have the most diverse portfolio of leadership products in our history and, as a result of our six pillars of innovation and disaggregation strategy, much more flexibility in how we build, package and deliver those products for our customers".
