  • Provides a comprehensive introduction to current low-power innovation, low-voltage technology and non-volatile memory technology
  •  Describes a new form of low-power computing innovation, known as “normally-off/instant-on” computing, which achieves drastic power reduction without sacrificing performance
  • Appeals to computing engineers with novel content about non-volatile memory and device engineers with content about computing innovation

This book describes computing innovation, using non-volatile memory for a sustainable world.  It provides a compact overview of a green computing scheme, including cutting-edge CMOS low-power devices, comprehensive spintronics knowledge, trends in low-volatile memory and non-volatile RAM, low voltage (low leakage) computing circuits and systems, and a low-power computing plan that uses non-volatile memory.  Coverage should appeal both to computing engineers and device engineers, as the authors describe a new means of lower power computing innovation, without sacrificing performance over conventional low-voltage operation. Readers will be introduced to methods of design and implementation for non-volatile memory which allow computing equipment to be turned off normally when not in use and to be turned on instantly to operate with full performance when needed.


·         Provides a comprehensive introduction to current low-power innovation, low-voltage technology and non-volatile memory technology;

·         Includes an overview of leading-edge CMOS low-power devices and spintronics technology;

·         Describes trends in low-voltage SRAM and low-voltage DRAM, providing readers with power management insight, showing the evolution of the interface between memory and processor and the predicted development of memory hierarchy systems in the future;

·         Describes in detail STT-RAM (or SPRAM, spin-transfer torque RAM) technology and its potential for achieving low power consumption and high performance;

·         Covers low-power computing technology at the circuits and systems levels, including the latest low-voltage computing technology being used to prevent leakage currents, as well as a description of an instantaneous on/off system using non-volatile RAMs, which can serve as an example for future green computing.
