IBM, Samsung collaborate on chip research

US computer giant IBM and South Korean electronics titan Samsung have announced they will begin working together on ways to make better chips for smartphones and other gadgets.

Samsung researchers will team with scientists at the IBM Semiconductor Research Alliance in New York State to create computer processor "solutions that are optimized for performance, power consumption, and size."

"Collaborative innovation will be critical if the semiconductor industry is to continue driving new forms of consumer electronics and new methods of computing," said IBM microelectronics general manager Michael Cadigan.

"That's why we're excited to have Samsung scientists working with us at the most fundamental stages of the R&D process."

The companies are striving to develop chips to power a high-performance generation of "smarter, connected and more mobile" devices.
