International Business Machines Corp (IBM) to Invest $3 billion in Chip Research


The secret of modern technological evolution lies in the compression of the semiconductor spatial volumes and tech giants around the globe are investing millions of dollars to achieve next levels of progress in this domain. International Business Machines Corp (NYSE:IBM) has announced $3 billion commitment to semiconductor chips development. According to Bloomberg’s Betty Liu report on hot tech stories, this step by International Business Machines Corp (NYSE:IBM) is perceived as an effort to cease the long-term semiconductor researching the field on Nano technologies, silicon photonics and carbon nanotubes.

Moore’s law has been driving the modern chips industry since long and International Business Machines Corp (NYSE:IBM) has been trying to cram more and more transistors into smaller spaces, like 22 nanometers. But the insiders reported that this time, IBM is eyeing for cramming transistors at a semiconductor chip of 7 nanometers.

This will be a huge breakthrough in the electronics chip making industry if IBM gets through with this research and by seeing the level of investments, we can easily say that International Business Machines Corp (NYSE:IBM) is really going to open the new horizons in the semiconductor industry in the coming years.

According to International Business Machines Corp (NYSE:IBM), the $3 billion investment is for two R&D related domains The first will focus on pushing the modern day semiconductors chip to as minute as they can and International Business Machines Corp (NYSE:IBM) experts will try to minimize the chip spatial volumes. The other domain will be to elevate the computing powers of chips and to find the new materials that can help the manufacturers get new ways to enhance processing capacity.

Betty Liu also reported that Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) may soon be able to register a trademark to get rid of copyright issues that are becoming a big nudge for the tech giant these days.
