Projects

Kamino

Established: April 17, 2015

The Kamino project explores ways in which systems should adopt new memory technologies including SSDs (NAND-Flash), battery-backed DRAM and emerging non-volatile memory technologies (phase change memory, memristors, spin-torque transfer memory, etc.) for increased performance and efficiency. The project explores how…

Battery Research at Microsoft

Established: March 19, 2015

Mobile devices such as smartphones, along with other battery operated devices, are energy constrained. While hardware capabilities have increased tremendously over the last ten years, battery energy density has only doubled. In this project we are exploring several techniques to…
