Its environmentally friendly merchandise area unit factory-made employing a vary of clean-computing methods, and also the company is pains to coach markets on the advantages of green computing for the sake of the setting, additionally as productivity and overall user expertise. 3.1. Carbon-free computing: One of the VIA Technologies‘concepts is to reduce the "carbon footprint" of users the number of greenhouse gases completed, measured in units of carbon dioxide (CO2). Greenhouse gases naturally blanket the planet and area unit accountable for its a lot of or less stable temperature. a rise within the concentration of the most greenhouse gases carbon dioxide, methane, inhalation anesthetic, and fluorocarbons is believed to be accountable for Earth's increasing temperature, that may lead to severe floods and droughts, rising ocean levels, and different environmental effects, moving each life and also the world's economy.

3.2. Solar Computing: Amid the international race in the direction of alternative-energy sources, VIA is situation its look at on the sun, and also the company's solar Computing initiative could be a vital a part of its green-computing comes. For that purpose, VIA partnered with Motech Industries, one amongst the biggest producers of solar cells worldwide. Solar cells match VIA's power-efficient semiconducting material, platform, and system technologies and modify the corporate to develop totally solar-powered devices that area unit nonpolluting, silent, and extremely reliable. Solar cells need little maintenance throughout their lifespan, and once initial installation prices area unit lined, they supply energy at nearly no price. Worldwide production of solar cells has accrued apace over the previous couple of years; and as a lot of governments begins to acknowledge the advantages of alternative energy, and also the development of electrical phenomenon technologies goes on, prices area unit expected to still decline. As a part of VIA's ―pc-1‖ initiative, the corporate established the first-ever solar-powered cyber civic center within the Pacific, high-powered entirely by solar technology.

small solder balls on the bottom of the package. VIA's leadless producing technologies don't need a lead bead, and also the solder balls currently encompass a tin, silver, and copper composite.

3.4. Energy-efficient computing: A central goal of VIA‘s green-computing initiative is that the development of energy-efficient platforms for low-power, little form factor computing devices. during 2005, the corporate introduced the VIA C7-M and VIA C7 processors that have a most power consumption of a pair of0W at 2.0GHz and a mean power consumption of 1W. These energy-efficient processors turn out over fourfold less carbon throughout their operation and might be with efficiency embedded in solar power driven devices. VIA isn‘t the only company to contract with environmental concerns: Intel, the world's largest semiconductor maker, discovered eco-friendly merchandise at a recent conference in London. The corporate uses virtualization software package, a way that permits Intel to mix many physical systems into a virtual machine that runs on one, powerful base system, so considerably reducing power consumption. Earlier this year, Intel joined Google, Microsoft, and alternative corporations within the launch of the Climate Savers Computing Initiative that commits businesses to satisfy the Environmental Protection Agency‘s Energy Star pointers for energy-efficient devices.

3.5. Visualization through the pc-1 scheme: VIA isn‘t attracting only on the technological aspects of its eco-friendly devices, it‘s conjointly taking a glance at their applications.
