In today's increasingly tense fossil energy in the computer industry, has launched a low-voltage energy-saving storm.
As early as 2007, British manufacturers the Aleutia already launched a real solar-powered Mini PC. It consumes only 8 watts, the use of the Linux system, early a leading eco-friendly computer. This MiniPC though small, perfectly formed, for example, with a USB interface travel mouse and curled waterproof keyboard, and so a lot of good things, and laid the foundation for its strong portability.
in September 2011, the IDF, Cpu
industry giant Intel shows one can use the solar battery-powered,
ultra-low-power processor, the power consumption as low as only 2mW.
Semiconductor Technology Conference held in February this year, ISSCC 2012
disclosed technical details of the Fengyun ultra-low-power processor. At the
meeting, Intel introduced the the latest 3D Tri-Gate transistor technology
using NTV technology variable-precision floating-point calculation module. In
addition, focusing on promoting the key to the Cpu low power consumption - near
the threshold voltage (Near-Threshold Voltage) technology. San Francisco
The latest energy saving technology for the African region to bring the gospel. Recently, Kenya IT companies Stonehouse launched called "Solar Classroom in a Box" system, this is a use of solar energy to launch low-voltage computer. Is well known, although the network is very popular, but for some of
off-grid remote areas, the network and the computer is still a
"luxury." At present, this low-voltage computer has started a school
in the vicinity of Lake Naivasha in the Great Rift
Valley used to benefit from the more than 500 students.
"Solar Classroom in a Box" in terms of computer than for the same
size of the school to buy cheaper and more especially when combined with
electricity and maintenance fees. Stonehouse plans to provide similar services
in more developing countries, is expected next beneficiary countries is . Uganda
"Give a man a fish than teach him to fish" best reflect the more backward areas is needed with the outside world to keep in touch, to understand the latest developments in the world, donated computers to allow them to understand the world through a network to the local people in Africa than donations of supplies and money is more valuable.
