The converted 2.2 billion euros will flow over the next five years in two research and development programs, such as IBM on Thursday at its headquarters in Armonk in the State of New York announced . In a program, the possibilities of the previous chip technology are to be exploited, which is based on the material silicon. In a second program, new approaches to the development and production of chips are to be found in order to overcome the physical limits of silicon.
IBM is one of the pioneers of computer technology. However, the Group has withdrawn from lean production margins from the production of PCs and standard servers. There is also speculation that IBM may sell its chip manufacturing. The constantly necessary modernization of the factories consumes a lot of money.
A similar path was taken by the processor manufacturer AMD when in 2009 it outsourced its plants to its own company called Globalfoundries, including the Dresden site. AMD focuses on development and marketing. Globalfoundries is also seen as the most likely buyer of IBM manufacturing in the US media .
