Technological Breakthrough in Israel

Another amazing Israeli contribution to the world: Drip irrigation ICQ Epilady micro-camera pill A new generation computer chip.

A team of Israeli researchers at Intel has achieved a breakthrough in chip development that promises to change the world of computing and telecommunications within 5 to 10 years.

For the first time, the team succeeded in developing electro-optical chipsets based on silicon wafers capable of converting electronic signals to optic signals within the chip. They have the potential to be mass produced at the same cost as standard electronic chips. Currently, the manufacturing cost of an optical chip (which is not silicon based) runs into hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

According to Intel’s assessment, the electro-optic chips developed during the past year and a half at the company’s Jerusalem facility will replace the standard electronic chips used for communications between computer components, allowing this communication to be conducted at the speed of light – 10 times the current speed.

Patrick Gelsinger, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Intel, called this “a significant step toward building optical devices that move data around inside a computer at the speed of light. It is the kind of breakthrough that ripples across an industry over time, enabling other new devices and applications. It could help make the Internet run faster, build much faster high-performance computers and enable high bandwidth applications like ultra-high-definition displays or vision recognition systems.”

And imagine how much more could be accomplished if we weren’t so busy getting blown up.

  1. i heard a technion professor speak once and he said it best with: “everything that Israel has accomplished, ithas done it with one hand tied behind her back”. In other words, the amazing accomplishments that benefit the whole world could have been achieved much easier anywhere else in the world and yet still, Israel was the one to bring it. Gotta love a country like that. No matter what shit Israel faces, it still leads the world in amazing discoveries and inventions.
