The next few years will bring great changes in the way our society views the high-tech community. We are in the early stages of a transition that will result in recognition of the electronics industry as a major
contributor to the resolution of the world’s global warming problems. Companies have long been talking about power reduction initiatives, but have yet to implement many of them.

This white paper addresses the new power paradigm calling on the electronics industry to take responsibility for reducing energy consumption, improving power efficiency, and reducing greenhouse gasses. This new model for power usage has produced a number of solutions, from the design of “power-smart” chips and systems to the development of industry-wide power efficiency guidelines.
