Lars-Erik Wernersson, professor in nanoelectronics at lund university, has together with his research team developed a technology for the smarter of transistors that can be put to use in electronics that operate at low energy, for example, sensors for the Internet of Things.
When his colleagues at the faculty of engineering recently reported on data from an experiment that was done in the framework of the EU-funded project E2SWITCH understood Lars-Erik Wernersson, just like the students who performed the test, it was a groundbreaking result:
" We have done if the tests many times and managed to demonstrate that the performance with this new, energy-saving technology is not only sufficient, but even better than that based on traditional techniques.
When the amount of energy that is used to turn on or off the transistors to be reduced, significant overall savings can be made.
For Internet of Things applications are expected to transistors with low energy consumption have a big impact.
" We have been able to operate the transistors in the so-called fundamental thermal limit, which reduces energy consumption.
