Streamlining Connected Object Energy Consumption.Streaming a HD movie requires more electricity than its takes to produce and transport a DVD of the same film. How can connected objects improve this situation?
Gaël Pillonnet, a seasoned energy conversion expert at CEA-Leti, has come up with an ingenious solution that significantly reduces the energy consumption of traditional transistors, albeit at a slower computation speed. This opens up a host of possibilities for achieving energy efficiency and computational performance, especially in edge computing.
‘Radically Different’ Concept Enables ‘Dual-Behavior’ DevicesThat Can Store Data and Energy
Theoretically, in-memory computing should make it possible to reduce circuit power consumption. Researchers recently verified this hypothesis in the lab, using tools they developed for the programming of innovative computing architectures.
From January 11 to 14, 2021, the CEA will participate in the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) for the 7th consecutive year. For this 100% digital version, the CEA is supporting 3 startups spun off from its laboratories that have developed technological solutions in response to three major societal challenges: the energy transition, the digital transition and the medicine of the future.
Gallium Nitride Seen as Highly Efficient Replacement for Silicon in Wide Range of Consumer and Industrial Uses. Two complementary research papers from CEA-Leti confirmed that the institute's approach to gallium-nitride (GaN) technologies is on track overcome challenges in the architecture and performance of advanced GaN devices embedding a MOS gate, and targeting the fast-growing global market for power-conversion systems.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
