Intel Corp. is due to place its new laboratory into service Wednesday. A ceremony is planned at the San Antonio de Belén plant. Intel promised the lab when it announced that it would be ending its chip manufacturing in Costa Rica and moving the operation to Vietnam.
The lab is supposed to give a final approval to all the Intel products before they enter into the manufacturing process. The firm will be putting about 70 percent of its laboratories in this Costa Rican facility, it said.
