IBM tomorrow will announce a $3 billion research and development investment to create a new generation of semiconductors geared for cloud, big data and cognitive systems. Over the next five years, Big Blue says it will use the money to fund two broad research and early-stage development programs to overcome the challenges involved in making ever-more-powerful chips.

“The simple scaling of semiconductors died almost 10 years ago and people have been quietly able to hide that,” says IBM Fellow Bernie Meyerson, of vice president of Innovation.

Meyerson notes that it’s not that engineers haven’t been able to continue scaling down semiconductors over the past few years; it’s that individual components and materials have reached their physical limits.
