AGGIOS®, the energy management and design technology leader, announced
today that it was selected by the California Energy Commission (CEC) to
receive funding for "cutting-edge research that will reduce the cost of
producing electricity, save energy and improve the environment,"
according to the CEC press release. The CEC also states that "projects
completed under the CEC-EISG program have attracted follow-on research
funds from other sources on a ratio of 53 to 1. As of 2013, $34 million
in EISG awards has led to $1.8 billion in follow-on investment."
The new technology developed by AGGIOS leverages the power profile of
device hardware and software in combination with application and user
activity information to automatically generate the optimum run-time
energy management software. By centralizing the information collection
and decision making into a single process, analogous to a "control
room", the technology controls all aspects of the power consumption in
the device and its external connections.
The new technology funded by the CEC shall help semiconductor companies,
set top box producers and other communication equipment manufacturers to
share the costs of the common energy optimization infrastructure and
improve their ability to compete on the market. California is the
worldwide leader in design of communication chips and devices, so it is
expected that California shall have most business benefits from the new
"We are thankful to the technical reviewers and the commission who
selected our technology for CEC funding. Looking forward, we expect that
the impact of our technology, in particular the common Unified Hardware
Abstraction (UHA) format for energy management and design, shall be
similar to the VHDL functional format developed at the behest of the US
Department of Defense in 1981 which was essential for the formation of
today's $10B Electronic Design Automation and IP industry," said Vojin
Zivojnovic, President & CEO of AGGIOS.
