The so-called IBM fab club - Globalfoundries, IBM and Samsung Electronics - plan to preview the future of chip production technology at the 2012 Common Platform technology forum to be held at the Santa Clara, California, on March 14, 2012.

The companies will address next-generation semiconductor innovation and discuss the Common Platform’s technology - covering critical topics such as 28nm, 20nm and 14nm processes, as well as innovations beyond 14nm and 450mm wafer manufacturing.

"The Common Platform alliance is built upon an legacy of invention and deep commitment to research and development from IBM. The combined expertise of the companies involved is driving truly breakthrough technology innovations for semiconductor manufacturing. Our focus on building the most extensive and open ecosystem around our core manufacturing capabilities delivers customers a flexible and risk-free way to bring a wide range of semiconductor products to market," said Michael Cadigan, general manager of IBM Microelectronics, on behalf of the common platform alliance.

The Common Platform technology forum will include keynotes from industry leaders and presentations from senior members of the Common Platform partners’ management and technical teams. A key part of the forum will focus on collaboration for technology delivery, highlighting the rich and broad ecosystem of design enablement and implementation partners through a Partner Pavilion featuring leading EDA, IP, library, mask, packaging and design services companies.

hAiz! I is an intel fanb0i!

So, why should I hate this story? Semiconductor innovation benefits all players in the electronics industry, and especially benefits the consumer. Double win, I guess?

The Intel fanbois who can't do basic math or understand a story on AMD continue to wear their technical and social ignorance as a badge of honor.


Did I mention AMD sold 30 MILLION APUs in 2011 and made almost a Half BILLION Dollars in NET PROFIT in 2011 after taking a $315 Million tax write-off?

The idea is to make up and coming chips not x86 chips, ARM etc are the type of chip which have the greatest market share, or should I say the future of chip design as it has a non propriety o/s so that innovation takes quickly and at a far quicker rate. Bad like for fanbois of both houses.

Good point tedstoy, the x86 market has nowhere near the market penetration ARM/MIPS have and Linux is the OS of choice (except for gaming) along with Android
