How much memory is actually embedded in the 50% networking %?
26% is for local memory on a computer.
how about all the memory up stream in the routers, wireless devices, local and remote servers?
assuming 25% of these devices power is memory then 25% of 50% is 12.5%
SO the total is really 37.5% for memory cradle to grave?
And with compounding it get slightly larger ~ 40%.
So iff you convert cradle to grave and use this low power memory combo (dram or other + flash) these savings will look even better.
If all devices from Google to laptop all are converted to new memory what is the total %?
You could have a point there, however given that 26% of the power budget appears to come from memory changing things to reduce power would definitely give them a competitive advantage and be worth pursuing.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
