Smart ICs drive energy saving leverage with end-products
Energy leverage: Many IC's can save a multitude of the energy they use themselves, including the energy needed to produce them! 2D color dimming in Backlight LCD-TV
Potential annual saving: 39 TWh
(10% TV's equipped)

Total annual NXP IC manufacturing:

1.2 TWh

Automotive eco-friendly solutions

In-Vehicle Networking
Smart communication protocol: more data transfer per wire Saves copper wiring, and thus weight, up to 30 kg per car

Sensors
Link between mechanics and electronics Optimized control of fuel and air flow

Tire pressure monitoring
Early notification of low tire pressure Less fuel wasted due to low tire pressure Extended tire lifetime

Automotive Telematics
Improved car guidance taking traffic congestion into account Traffic congestion prediction Road toll pricing

Saves fuel, reduces emissions

#segment s

light is lost by: - color filtering per pixel

Energy savings:
More segments: increased cost but save more power Potentially 50% overall power saved in an LCD TV set (40") Global power savings: 39 Terawatt Hour (10% of all TVs) = 4 Power plants less/year (2010 � 2020)

2D Color dimming:
Image Light

signal is analyzed first

is only emitted by LEDs in the color and intensity needed at the right location and time LCD transmission is optimized



Saves energy, improves contrast!

Smart electricity metering

Real-time monitoring and pricing of electricity Demand management (e.g. airco, water heater) Combine with smart home sensors

Consumer awareness & reduced peak consumption less power plants Avoid power outage reliability of power grid Consumption tailored to personal life style reduce energy when you can

Being "Green" needs to be real and relevant to engineers and end customers
What spec is really important? How can a customer sell more or make more $? Does the end user get a real benefit? Does it matter at Best Buy or Wal-Mart?

Illustration: Best Buy

How can we share in the energy savings and value we create?

$$$$

Summary
Eco-consciousness has become a major innovation driver for the IC industry Every engineer is interested in energy efficiency The IC industry pushes the green boundaries pro-actively from manufacture to end of life The big energy win and leverage is in end-products Energy efficiency needs to be real and relevant How can we tap into the energy value we create?
