IBM to spend $3 bn aiming for computer chip breakthrough
by Staff Writers
New York (AFP) July 10, 2014


IBM announced plans Wednesday to pump $3 billion into an overhaul of computer chip technology to better meet modern demands of "Big Data" and computing pushed to the Internet "cloud."

The New York-based technology veteran hopes to leave behind the silicon long used in computer chips for a material that could ramp up power while shrinking processors to molecular levels.

Services and programs are increasingly being hosted at data centers in the Internet cloud, and companies are keen to mine and quickly analyze mountains of data available in the Internet age.

But chip technology is hitting limits in regard to improving speed, size, power-efficiency and other features, according to IBM.

The company said the money will be used over the next five years to beef up research teams in areas including carbon nanoelectronics, silicon photonics, new memory technologies, and architectures for quantum and cognitive computing.

"In the next ten years computing hardware systems will be fundamentally different as our scientists and engineers push the limits of semiconductor innovations to explore a post-silicon future," said IBM Systems and Technology Group senior vice president Tom Rosamilia.

IBM maintained there is urgent need for new material to power chips of the future along with "new computing platforms to solve problems that are unsolvable or difficult to solve today."

Among IBM goals is to emulate the processing efficiency of the human brain.

"Businesses are entering a new era of computing that requires systems to process and analyze, in real-time, huge volumes of information known as Big Data," IBM said.

Move Over, Silicon, There's a New Circuit in Town
Los Angeles CA (SPX) Jun 24, 2014
When it comes to electronics, silicon will now have to share the spotlight. In a paper recently published in Nature Communications, researchers from the USC Viterbi School of Engineering describe how they have overcome a major issue in carbon nanotube technology by developing a flexible, energy-efficient hybrid circuit combining carbon nanotube thin film transistors with other thin film transist ... read more
