Résumé: Many of microelectronics devices and digital systems, especially wireless sensors networks, represent environment hazards. The promise of “Green systems” will depend on the following characteristics:
* Minimizing the amount of energy required to actually operate the involved circuits.
* Minimizing the number of required devices and their associated interconnections.
* Using a true battery-free devices, by utilizing energy harvesting devices that can utilize energy harvested directly from the environment ;e.g. light, motion, vibration.
* Developing efficient cooling techniques.
In this talk, developing Green circuits and systems will be addressed, several of the design and communication issues will be discussed, and a case study of a current project of developing green wireless sensors networks will be given.
