    Intel builds processors at the heart of nearly everything. And transistors – lots and lots of them – make up the engine that powers every Intel processor. To build a modern microchip, Intel's engineers place billions of these tiny switches into an area no larger than a fingernail. It's one of mankind's most complex feats, and it's happening every day across Intel's global network of chip manufacturing facilities.

    In February, Intel produced a video that animated a chip's journey from concept to customer. For a deeper look into the chipmaking process and the technological marvels that are Intel's transistor technology, view the video "From Sand to Silicon: The Making of a Microchip."
