Energy Efficient Microelectronics
Infrared camera VarioCAM® hr head shown in the exhibition „Cool X“
Both, the Cool Silicon Exhibition and the „Technische Sammlungen Dresden“ have designed an exhibition that shows innovations for an energy efficient future of communications and information technology. Those innovative solutions significantly reducing the energy consumption in the field of information and communication technology have been developed by more than 100 cluster partners of “Silicon Saxony”. “Silicon Saxony” is Europe’s largest microelectronic region - the Chemnitz-Dresden-Freiberg region.
With an exhibition area of 440 m2, visitors are given a completely new view of the fascinating world of microelectronics research. Every technology requires energy, and therefore the daily energy consumption steadily increases and at the same time chips used in mobile phones, tablets, or computers are getting smaller. One possibility to reduce the energy consumption is the use of modern thermal imaging technology. Supported by this technology, electronic assemblies and components can be fast and efficiently thermally optimised. This exhibition presents the work of the research cluster “Cool Silicon” using numerous hands-on exhibits with different experimental stations and fascinating experiments.
