-Today, __energy consumption has become the major hurdle that prevents an increase in the quality and number of tasks that computer systems can perform__. This is true both for data center applications,​ and even more so for all the embedded devices that are taking a growing importance in our lifes. Unfortunately,​ the energy efficiency of standard CMOS integrated circuits has been progressing very slowly. Therefore, we need to develop new approaches to continue improving energy efficiency.+Today, __energy consumption has become the major hurdle that prevents an increase in the quality and number of tasks that computer systems can perform__. This is true both for data center applications,​ and even more so for all the embedded devices that are taking a growing importance in our lifes.

 Some energy gains can be made by moving tasks that were previously performed by general purpose processors onto dedicated hardware, but for tasks that already have dedicated hardware implementations,​ improvements can only come from a change to the way digital circuits operate. Some energy gains can be made by moving tasks that were previously performed by general purpose processors onto dedicated hardware, but for tasks that already have dedicated hardware implementations,​ improvements can only come from a change to the way digital circuits operate.
