Developing energy-saving chips that are key for next generation computers

The development of latest computer chips with a higher performance has hit a snag, as they consume too much electricity. A key to solve this deadlock is developing a technology to effectively lower the energy consumption of computer chips. At our laboratory, we design chips and research technologies to save energy that use the best method to process information inside a computer chip.
