Energy use at huge data farms could decrease by as much as 20 percent if WSU’s new computer chip with a wireless network on it becomes a commercial reality. Dr. Partha Pande, a professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, with Professors Deukhyoun Heo and Benjamin Belzer, published a paper on their research in the May issue of an emerging technologies publication and have filed two patents on  their chip design.

The innovation would also speed up data processing and replace the conventional metal wires on current computer chips that are wasteful in long range data exchanges. Sustainable computing is growing as … » More …
