SuVolta Cuts Down Semiconductor Power Consumption By 50 Percent

SuVolta Technologies, a Silicon Valley chip designing start up has announced that its researchers invented a new way to cut-down the power consumption by semiconductors by almost 50 percent, without making any negative impact on its overall performance.

As revealed by the company president and CEO Bruce McWilliams, SuVolta is currently planning to license this new chip making technology.

It has been a while since the semiconductor industry had understood how it has slowly and gradually become the need of the hour for companies to come up with new ways to limit the power consumption by electronic devices within a safe and low threshold limit.

With this new offering, SuVolta can at least claim to have played its part to a significant extent to support the cause.

"When you move away from planar, bulk CMOS, you're asking the semiconductor industry to bear a huge cost burden, literally billions of dollars, associated with developing new manufacturing facilities and circuit designs," Dr Scott Thompson, the chief technology officer of SuVolta stated as cited by TG Daily (opens in new tab).

"SuVolta's technology works within existing designs and IP flows, and with existing equipment," he added.

A number of leading technology companies including Fujitsu, is believed to be preparing to make a deal with SuVolta to embrace this new technology.
