EcoCloud professor David Atienza has received an ERC Consolidator Grant for his research proposal “COMPUSAPIEN: Computing Server Architecture with Joint Power and Cooling Integration at the Nanoscale”.

COMPUSAPIEN’s focus is the design of a three-dimensional computing server inspired by the mammalian brain. The project will involve developing and integrating breakthrough innovations in heterogeneous computing architecture, cooling-power subsystem design, combined microfluidic power delivery and temperature management in computers.

The integrated electronic-electrochemical design is expected to result in drastic energy savings and guarantee energy scalability in future server architectures.
