Cutting edge University-level research on technologies for developing energy efficient products for all aspects of everyday life is one of the core competencies of AllGreenTech.

With the goal of identifying technologies for efficient implementation of future AllGreenTech products, Jay Iyer researched and presented a paper on low-power system implementation technologies at University of California, Santa Barbara during the summer of 2012.

In this research, Jay Iyer evaluated 
the trade-off between low-power FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) and off-the-shelf microcontrollers for implementing hardware designs.

As a typical hardware design for this research, Jay Iyer chose to specify and design a RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computing) processor using the Verilog hardware description language, synthesize it, and implement it on a Xilinx Spartan 3E low-power FPGA.
