Next-gen chips are being developed by Samsung, Intel, Ericsson, and IBM in collaboration

It’s already exciting to hear these big companies are collaboratively developing something. Samsung, Ericsson, IBM, and Intel are planning research and developing a next-generation chip. The collaborative partnership is being sponsored by the US National Science Foundation (NSF) and was granted $50 million for an initiative named “Future of Semiconductors.”

NSF, along with four of our best tech companies, will work together on the idea of “co-design,” which is based on multiple agendas relating to the development of next-generation chips. The four big tech companies are planning to come together as one team to bring the idea to reality. Combined work and efforts will be made, including device performance, chip and system level, recyclability, environmental impact, and manufacturability.

As stated by the director of NSF, the development of future semi-conductors and micro-electronics will need a trans-disciplinary level of research, gadgets, and systems along with the handling of ideas of innovation in both academic and industrial sectors.

The NSF hopes to use the $50 million in funding to “inform research needs, encourage innovation, accelerate the translation of results to the market, and prepare the future workforce” through this collaboration involving Samsung, Ericsson, IBM, and Intel.

The NSF’s Future of Semiconductors (FuSe) Teaming Grants include this project. Independent development, according to the program, has slowed down the creation of new methods, materials, tools, and architectural designs. The initiative sees a tremendous possibility in co-developing computing technologies in order to advance them and lower the cost of their application. The intention is to build a large coalition of scientists and engineers, according to the statement.

A holistic, co-design approach, according to the foundation, can hasten the creation of “high-performance, resilient, secure, compact, energy-efficient, and cost-effective solutions.”

It makes sense that Samsung, one of the most significant semiconductor producers in the world, would agree to this plan to jointly create next-generation chips. It is unclear exactly when the consumer and business industries will benefit from these partnerships for next-generation computer technology.
