Intel Begins Plant Expansion: The world's largest chip maker broke ground on a $500-million expansion of its Santa Clara Pentium chip facility, which it said could create as many as 1,200 jobs. The project will double the size of Intel Corp.'s "clean room" to 70,000 square feet and add 160,000 square feet elsewhere in the plant. A clean room is an area where the air is thoroughly cleansed so that silicon chips--the brains of personal computers--won't be contaminated. The factory produces versions of Intel's most advanced microprocessor, the Pentium.
