Electronics for a Greener Planet

Christian Piguet, CSEM and EPFL

 

Summary :

Our goal must be the usage of ICT technologies to reduce significantly the worldwide energy consumption and carbon emission. Predictions about energy consumption in 2050 show that nearly 100% renewable energy is possible. On one hand, ICT devices themselves can be much more energy efficient in their usage but also in their fabrication. However, a more significant role for these systems will be to reduce the pressure over our planet in domains like transportation, agriculture, lighting, home control and health monitoring. Nevertheless, people behavioral changes are also definitely required for achieving sustainability. It is also obvious that engineers are the only persons capable of improving planet health by proposing intelligent ICT systems, but today they are not credited for this; it is therefore time for changing the image of engineers.

 

Biography

Christian Piguet received the M. S. and Ph. D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), respectively in 1974 and 1981. He joined the Centre Electronique Horloger S.A., Neuchâtel, Switzerland, in 1974. He is now Head of SoC Program at the CSEM Centre Suisse d'Electronique et de Microtechnique S.A. He is presently involved in the design of low-power low-voltage integrated circuits in CMOS technology, including design methodologies, microprocessor architectures, logic design and leakage and process variations issues. He is Professor at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland and lectures in VLSI design in the ALaRI master at the University of Lugano, Switzerland. Christian Piguet holds about 30 patents in digital design, microprocessors and watch systems.

He is author and co-author of about 250 publications in technical journals and of books and book chapters in low-power digital design. He is member of steering and program committees of many international conferences and has served as Program chair or co-chair of about 10 international conferences.
