Frustrated, my friend once remarked, "We are powerless to solve the current problem." Of course, he meant this in jest, but little did I realize that his statement would become the theme of my research for many years. Although my area of specialty is semiconductors and computer systems, the issues related to power haven't changed.

Power represents the major bottleneck in modern semiconductors and systems. With transistor scaling over the last two decades, Moore's law has enabled the integration of millions of ...
