UltraSoC awarded funding for energy efficiency project

Essex University spin-out company UltraSoC Technologies has won funding under the Energy Efficient Computing competition, receiving £150,000 from the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) for a new project.

The collaborative project between UltraSoC and Cambridge University, called spEEDO (Energy Efficiency through Debug suppOrt), will conduct research to identify the potential of increasing energy efficiency in electronic systems.

The project will use UltraSoC’s debug technology, allowing detailed information about the behaviour and energy usage of these systems to be measured.

The competition, organised by TSB, encourages technologies which can reduce the mounting energy burden of computing and communications devices and systems.
