Even though Intel Corp. is the world’s largest chipmaker with very large manufacturing capacities, it looks like the company still needs some help from the outside world. A media report claims that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company will produce code-named Langwell chips for Intel.

The Langwell chips are I/O hubs that support a range of I/O ports to connect with wireless, storage, and display components in addition to incorporating several board level functions. Such processors are a feature part of Moorestown platform that comprises of a system on a chip, code-named “Lincroft”, which integrates the 45nm processor, graphics, memory controller and video encode/decode function onto a single chip.

According to Taiwan Economic News, TSMC plans to produce Langwell chips using 65nm bulk fabrication process technology.

Intel Moorestown is aimed at mobile Internet devices and the main chip is made using 45nm fabrication process. The product is generally based on Intel Atom processor technology.

Intel did not comment on the news-story.
