This tiny component could help Google and others save tens of millions of dollars — new modules help improve power efficiency in AI-driven data centers

The energy consumption needs of data centres is growing exponentially, due in no small part to the increased demands of AI – around 2% of all global electricity usage is believed to be by data centers, and tech giants like Microsoft, Alphabet, and Amazon are under increasing pressure to implement energy efficiency measures to keep their data centers running.

While there are a number of clever new technologies being developed that can help with this issue, Infineon Technologies has one of the smallest solutions which could potentially save tech giants a not inconsiderable amount of money.
