Apple looking to open an R&D facility in Israel
According to a report by Ynetnews, Apple is looking to open a research and development center in Israel. A delegation of Apple representatives headed by VP Ed Frank is currently in the country meeting with high tech companies such as Intel. The new R&D operation will apparently be lead by Aharon Aharon, the former head of Zoran Corporation’s R&D center.
Apple is interested in this particular area as it is very close to the Technion. The Technion is Israel’s Institute of Technology and is proving to be a highly popular site for major tech companies. Already the area is home to Intel, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo and Qualcomm. The R&D facility is thought to be aimed at developing flash storage technologies for iOS devices and maybe further development of the A5 CPU.
