Thank you for contacting Intel community.
For ECCN/export related, kindly email to below address:
Please expect a response for 2 or 3 working days.
We do not receive any response from you to the previous answer that I have provided. This thread will be transitioned to community support. If you have a new question, feel free to open a new thread to get the support from Intel experts. Otherwise, the community users will continue to help you on this thread. Thank you
Thank you for re-open the case. This case was close previously due to no update respond.
Can you please let me know the exact device number for N5X that needed ECCN?
Have you also try to email the export team once again?
Original request was 10/15. Response was a request for MM# or SPEC code or OPN which I don't have (10/17). I responded 10/18 letting them know I did not have that information. 10/19 a request to provide an Intel webpage for N5X. 10/19 I sent the top level weblink on the Intel website for the N5x. 10/25 sent a request for up to see if export had the information. Was sent a link to
- Go to http://ark.intel.com
- Enter the product
- Go to ORDERING / SPECS / STEPPINGS to find the trade information
Neither of these sites has the N5X listed as a product. I originally stated that N5X is a new product for Intel.
I receive the following standard reply but no further replies from Export.
Please be advised that we are working on collecting the information requested. We will provide an update once we have the information.

Apologize for the delay in response as I was on leave last week.
Upon checking with the export team, there is no ECCN for the base array, as there is no export necessary as part of the eASIC business process.
Hope this will clarify. Thank you for your patience.
Thank you for checking, this is an interesting response as Intel’s FPGA base arrays have ECCN numbers assigned but do not contain any customer specific information.
So if a customer uses an eASIC part and does not include anything that would be considered covered by export control then his entire design being fab’d and manufactured overseas would not need an ECCN number in spite of the fact that it contains encryption technology with a key strength of 256 bits.
If the customer would need an ECCN number for that design, wouldn’t that be considered equivalent to a “base array” export as the customer has not added anything to the design and cannot remove the section that would be considered covered by export control.
If Intel is leaving it up to all eASIC customers to manage the export control process regardless of content, then it would be helpful to be up front and say that is the case. Right now there seems to be an inconsistency in the approach between FPGA base arrays and eASIC base arrays.
