AGGIOS Receives California Energy Commission Funding for Unified Power Control Technology

12/16/2013 | 03:02am EST

The project aims to lower energy consumption of set top boxes and other plug load devices deployed in California and nationwide beyond current and planned EnergyStar and Department of Energy standards

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 technology.

"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.
