Well, this is image processor will not show up in your next digital camera, it is used in the image detector at the CERN.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison develops and test the so called Regional Calorimeter Trigger. This is a device that can analyze a billion proton collisions per second and, of those, gather digitized data sets for 50,000 events with relevent parameters.
The $6 million device is to be installed as a component of the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment, one of the detectors on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the CERN. Components are scheduled to be shipped to Geneva in June and should be up and running by the end of 2006 in anticipation of the LHC’s first experiments planned for 2007.
