IBM and the challenge of systems design

In the past, systems could be designed for a single purpose. Although every system design is a set of compromises, it was possible to partially optimize a system design for a specific purpose. Today, system architects have been forced to try to build "do-everything-well" machines. IBM's announcements show its long history in system design.

IBM's new STM makes atomic scale Iron man movie

"Footage" of individual iron atoms captured by IBMs new pulsed-scanning tunnelling microscope, could herald a new era of atomic-scale microchip design, the company says.The scanning tunnelling microscope (STM), invented by IBM in the 1980s, can resolve images at the atomic scale.

IBM stresses the green-ification of product design and management

About a week ago, I mentioned an alliance between Autodesk and Sustainable Minds aimed at helping designers reate greener products from the drawing board stage. Now, IBM Global Business Services has introduced a set of product lifecycle services intended to help companies apply that sort of thinking not just to product design, but to the packaging around something, how that thing gets to and from where it needs to go, and where it ends up when its useful life is over.

A hardware-software symbiosis

We all want smaller and faster computers. Of course, this increases the complexity of the work of computer designers. But now, computer scientists from the University of Virginia are coming with a radical new idea which "may revolutionize computer design." They've developed Tortola, a virtual interface that enables hardware and software to communicate and to solve problems together. This approach can be applied to get a better performance from a specific system. It also can be used in the areas of security or power consumption. And it soon could be commercialized with the help of IBM and Intel.
