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.
Calcalist has also learned that a delegation headed by Apple VP Ed Frank is currently visiting Israel to meet with several high-tech companies. Frank took a tour of Haifa and visited Intel’s headquarters in the city’s Scientific Industries Center (MATAM). He is examining the north park of the center as a possible location for Apple’s center, Calcalist learned.
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.
