innovation for industry
Innovation doesn’t always mean starting from scratch. It can be about reimagining existing principles to meet future needs and striking a balance between speed and energy conservation.
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.
