IBM and Samsung have teamed on the development of new semiconductor process technology that can be used in a broad range of applications, from smartphone handsets to communications infrastructure. The collaboration will include basic research into new semiconductor materials, manufacturing processes and other technologies.

Samsung researchers shall join IBM scientists in the Semiconductor Research Alliance at the Albany Nanotech Complex, Albany, N.Y., where researchers will investigate new materials and transistor structures, as well as innovative interconnect and packaging solutions for next-generation technology nodes.

For consumers, a new generation of devices—smarter, connected and more mobile—would require essential semiconductor breakthroughs to keep pace with technology trends (i.e. the mobile web, cloud computing,) and users' loftier expectations around performance and reliability.

The agreement also renews IBM and Samsung's joint process development agreement (JDA) to multiple nodes starting at 20nm. IBM and Samsung plan to develop advanced technologies for foundry customers, enabling high-performance, energy-efficient chips at 20nm and beyond. To further enhance the JDA, Samsung's Semiconductor R&D centre will also participate in development contribution.
