IBM, Samsung announce new semiconductor design

IBM and Samsung Electronics unveiled on Tuesday an innovative semiconductor design, which would help the scaling of transistors beyond a nanosheet.

With this new vertical transistor architecture, semiconductor energy uses may be reduced by 85% when compared to other chips. This means that batteries may go over a week without charging, processes that require a lot of energy would be made more efficient, and other innovations in the internet of things (IoT) and edge technologies could be introduced.

Dr. Mukesh Khare, Vice President of Hybrid Cloud and Systems at IBM Research commented on the development: "Given the constraints the industry is currently facing along multiple fronts, IBM and Samsung are demonstrating our commitment to joint innovation in semiconductor design and a shared pursuit of what we call hard tech."
