The outfit makes processors for Apple’s iPhone would be the second big buy for Intel this week. Intel wrote a cheque for $7.68 billion to buy insecurity outfit McAfee.

The Infineon unit, which also makes chips for Samsung’s Galaxy S phone, had sales of 346 million euros in the fiscal third quarter, a 38 percent increase from a year earlier.
