CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom, January 21, 2013 – At a ceremony at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology in Cambridge, Intel presented a unique birthday gift to Professor Stephen Hawking. The gift featured the message “Happy Birthday Stephen Hawking” inscribed hundreds of times on a one of a kind 300mm silicon wafer typically used for mass production of Intel chips. The messages were “printed” using Intel’s 32nm manufacturing technology. Nano-scale copper lines, typically used to produce high-performance, low-power chips such as the ones in the latest smartphones with Intel Inside®, were used to create the messages. Each letter is ten microns wide, which is approximately ten times smaller than the width of a human hair.
