Agam Shah | Feb. 20, 2012
Intel's experimental solar-powered processor may have started off as a fun project, but the chip maker is now looking to extend the technology to hardware such as graphics processors, memory and floating point units.

Intel is sharing details about the chip layout and design methodology at ISSCC, which is being held from Feb. 19 to Feb. 23. The chip maker is also presenting separate papers that cover memory, graphics processors and floating-point units based on near-threshold voltage technology.

The research around the solar-powered CPU is being carried out in Intel's research labs. The chip maker has said it does not expect the solar-powered CPU to go commercial, but that elements from the research would be implemented in future Intel products.
