A news report in Science Daily, published on 02 March 2011, states that there was a time when a laptop could weigh 10 pounds and still sell--a time when a cell phone was larger than a pocket-- and a time when iPod only played music. today's consumers expect mobile devices that are increasingly small, yet ever-more powerful!
To promote energy-efficient multitasking, Harvard Graduate student Wonyoung Kim has developed and demonstrated a new device with the potential to reduce the power usage of modern processing chips. This could allow the creation of "smarter" smart phones, slimmer laptops and more energy-friendly data centers.
"If you're listening to music on MP3 player, you dont need to send power to the image and graphics processors at the same time," Kim says. "If you're just looking at photos, you don't need to power the audio-processor or the HD video processor."
at Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) showed in 2008 that fine grainer voltage control was a theoretical possibility. He showed that the MCVR could actually be implemented in hardware.
The research was supported by the National Science Foundation's Division of Computer and Network Systems, and Division of Computing and Communication Foundations.
