Professor Uzi Vishkin has been awarded U.S. Patent 7,707,388, issued on April 27, 2010, for his invention, titled "Computer memory architecture for hybrid serial and parallel computing systems."

The emergence of parallelism and parallel processing technologies has provided a growing opportunity for increased performance of computer systems. Many parallel systems are engineered to perform tasks with high or massive parallelism, but do not efficiently process serial code.

Prof. Vishkin's invention provides a processor/memory structure that allows serial programs to use quick local serial memories and parallel programs to use partitioned parallel memories. The system may switch between a serial mode and a parallel mode.

For more information about his invention, visit the U.S. Patent website.
