    1. 1. Intel’s Processor Innovation FrontlineTM 1Q. 2009 ©2009 TechIPm, LLC All Rights Reserved www.techipm.com
    2. 2. 1. Introduction of Intel’s Processor Innovation FrontlineTM This is a research report on the technology innovations landscape for Intel’s processor technology. This research utilizes patent information to assess the state of the art for technology innovations in Intel’s processor products. This research analyzes the utility patents issued in the United States (US) before January 1, 2009. Since the patent information are changed over time, this report only reflects the technology innovations landscape up to the time the analysis is conducted. This research is based on the statistical and analytical methods for mining patent information. This research is done by an expert both in intellectual property (IP) and technology subject matter. ©2009 TechIPm, LLC All Rights Reserved www.techipm.com 2
    3. 3. 2. Number of Patents by Year Since the United States is such a large market for products and services from nearly all technology innovations, a patent counting for growth in patenting over a period of times and distribution across technology areas can be a good measuring tool for monitoring the evolution of technology innovations. Since there is usually a time lag between the initial application date and the issue date by two to three years, both of issued date and application date are used in this research. This report analyzes the Intel’s processor patents issued by USPTO before January 1, 2009. There were total of 15690 issued patents in USPTO data base. Fig. 2.1 shows the growth trends for the Intel’s processor technology innovations. Key interpretation: active technology innovations started from around 1990 and peaked at around 1995, 1999, 2002, 2005. ©2009 TechIPm, LLC All Rights Reserved www.techipm.com 3

    5. 5. 3. Number of Patents by UPC The US Patent Classification (UPC) system classifies patents by function, structure, product, and industry use. Ranking the patents by the number of a specific UPC can provide insight about the field of applications for the developed technology innovations. Fig. 2.1 and Table 2.1 show the top 20 UPC main classes for the Intel’s processor technology innovations. Key interpretation: UPC classifies Intel’s process technology mainly as electrical computers and digital processing systems, and semiconductor device manufacturing. ©2009 TechIPm, LLC All Rights Reserved www.techipm.com 5

Table 3.1 Top 20 UPC main classes for Intel’s processor technology innovations UPC Class 711 ELECTRICAL COMPUTERS AND DIGITAL PROCESSING SYSTEMS: MEMORY 438 SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICE MANUFACTURING: PROCESS 710 ELECTRICAL COMPUTERS AND DIGITAL DATA PROCESSING SYSTEMS: INPUT/OUTPUT 713 ELECTRICAL COMPUTERS AND DIGITAL PROCESSING SYSTEMS: SUPPORT 257 ACTIVE SOLID-STATE DEVICES (E.G., TRANSISTORS, SOLID-STATE DIODES) ELECTRICAL COMPUTERS AND DIGITAL PROCESSING SYSTEMS: PROCESSING ARCHITECTURES AND INSTRUCTION PROCESSING (E.G., 712 PROCESSORS) 365 STATIC INFORMATION STORAGE AND RETRIEVAL 361 ELECTRICITY: ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS AND DEVICES 327 MISCELLANEOUS ACTIVE ELECTRICAL NONLINEAR DEVICES, CIRCUITS, AND SYSTEMS 345 COMPUTER GRAPHICS PROCESSING AND SELECTIVE VISUAL DISPLAY SYSTEMS 714 ERROR DETECTION/CORRECTION AND FAULT DETECTION/RECOVERY 709 ELECTRICAL COMPUTERS AND DIGITAL PROCESSING SYSTEMS: MULTICOMPUTER DATA TRANSFERRING 370 MULTIPLEX COMMUNICATIONS 375 PULSE OR DIGITAL COMMUNICATIONS 326 ELECTRONIC DIGITAL LOGIC CIRCUITRY 385 OPTICAL WAVEGUIDES 708 ELECTRICAL COMPUTERS: ARITHMETIC PROCESSING AND CALCULATING 382 IMAGE ANALYSIS 348 TELEVISION ©2009 TechIPm, LLC All Rights Reserved www.techipm.com 7
    8. 8. 4. Cites per Patent Cites per patent (CPP) is a mean value of citations received by a specific patent class from subsequent patents. High CPP value is often associated with important innovations, which are key to future development in technology innovations. Fig. 4.1 shows CPP for Intel’s processor patents Key interpretation: UPC 382 (image analysis) shows the highest value of CPP. ©2009 TechIPm, LLC All Rights Reserved www.techipm.com 8

    10. 10. 5. Citations Matrix for Intel’s Processor Patents Backward Citation vs. Forward Citation matrix may be used to show quality landscape for a company’s patent portfolios. A patent located in the upper left corner of the matrix chart (low value in backward citation and high value in forward citation) may play a very important role for the development of innovative technology in a specific technology field. Fig. 5.1 shows the citation portfolios for Intel’s processor patents. Key interpretation: a large number of Intel’s processor patents are located in high values in forward citation and low values in backward citation. ©2009 TechIPm, LLC All Rights Reserved www.techipm.com 10
