Theme: Innovations in Low Carbon Economy


The exponential growth of today’s information technology demands increasing use of energy across all hardware platforms connected by Internet and Wireless. The key to keep that growing momentum is to focus on the energy efficient solutions for computing, communication, and storage. The digital technologies at corporate and consumer platforms have converged, and shifted more towards low power at smart phone and tablet computing with ever decreasing carbon footprints. The cloud computing technologies provide efficient mechanisms for resource pooling and data global sharing, enabling new functions and usages in end users’ platforms.

The rising of GPU, with its highly paralleled many-core architecture, can provide much more efficient mechanism to process large data set than traditional CPU, yielding much higher FLOPS per watt. GPU computing brings new directions to efficient computing, fundamentally challenges the traditional CPU computing. On the other hand, the economic benefit from semiconductor scaling determined by Moore’s Law continues, and accelerates the trend of integrating many IC blocks into one system chip, i.e. System on Chip (SOC). The prevailing adoption of SOC in portable and embedded platforms has made computing an indispensible element of our daily life, with thousands of applications in mobile phones, automobiles, headsets, laptops, games consoles, portable navigation devices, interactive Internet TV, and a multitude of other consumer electronics products.

The trend of low carbon has also extended to the high end computing with the CPU and GPU being fused together. Will it a be an ultimate fate of all the ASIC’s to be absorbed and integrated back in the CPU? Or will it be just another door opened to a new class of innovative technologies that can bring new applications and business models to the IT world?

Low carbon presents great opportunities and new dimensions for building new hardware components and systems, software and platform solutions for new businesses. Please come to CASPA 2010 Annual Conference to learn the perspectives from the technology leaders from the Silicon Valley and the world.
