New iPhone May Feature Wax Microprocessors

Aug 24 2013, 3:55am CDT | by , in News | Apple

A new wax cooling procedure is being used for overheated microprocessors that may be stuffed into your future iPhone. The wax absorbs most of the heat quickly thereby allowing the chip to continue functioning beyond its limit.

New iPhone May Feature Wax Microprocessors

Your future iPhones might come with new wax chipa. You might not believe this but an ordinary substance such as wax is being used to cool hot microprocessors. The moment the microchip becomes too hot the wax surrounding it automatically melts and lowers the temperature considerably. This of course allows it to continue functioning.

In an experiment, researchers tried this with an Intel Core i7 microprocessor and its power increased from the usual 10 watts to 50 watts. Scientists are ready to take this process up to 100 watts although this will be an ephemeral phenomenon. The need to cool the chip when it reached a critical temperature is best met by a substance that is very common: wax. 

The experiment has been tried with the Apollo missions that went into outer space. And it was a success. So in the near future you can expect your smart phone to have wax packed into its structure. The brain and its neural network, on which the computer and telecommunications revolution are based, work in a similar manner. The myelin sheaths that cover the axons are made of fat and they are there to absorb the heat and excess charge generated by the brain’s electricity.

So covering microchips in a capsule of wax can solve the overheating problem in a jiffy. The process is termed “computational sprinting” and it allows the device to perform at supersonic speeds for brief moments. While the solution may seem a little crazy to some people that is precisely the goal of science: to keep pushing boundaries and go from the known towards the unknown.
