3 Big data security analytics techniques

Irish chip designer, Parthus, is nearly ready to give second generation mobile Internet a boot up the jacksie, with new technology that will dissipate up to 100 times as much power as currently possible.

While the big four phone companies have predicted that phones will be on the market by Christmas 2001, Parthus said that battery life problems and overheating handsets could delay mass adoption of Internet devices by at least a year.

Brian Long, the chief executive of Parthus, commented: "Current prototypes are only running at 10Kbps. When the data rate is wound up, they use too much power and become too hot."

More details were not forthcoming, however, as Parthus refuses to say more until the launch, some time in the next three months. It did hint that any launch would be accompanied by the announcement of a customer for the chip.

The company also announced its first year results, showing £22 million revenues -a rise of 68 per cent according to the company figures. ®
