In this technology area, we aim to radically reduce power consumption of semiconductors for information and communication infrastructure. Specifically, we aim to develop semiconductor device and process technologies for ultra-low power logic and memory, innovative transmission hardware technologies that reduce power consumption per communication bit by several orders of magnitude, and materials and implementation methods that achieve highly efficient thermal management. We will also develop highly efficient and reliable power conversion and control circuits, inverter/converter stabilization technology, and other technologies to improve the energy efficiency and reliability of large-scale, complex power grids
