Those are tile bits, and I doubt they have enough length for what the OP is doing.

This is what a concrete/masonry diamond core bit looks like:

You may well be right but the OP has not told us what he is trying to accomplish with such small holes in a foundation? As mentioned, the bit I have works just fine in masonry and concrete for drilling holes into which screw anchors go to hang art.
