Researchers from NC State and Samsung Electronics have found a way to boost the speed of computer applications by more than 9 percent. The improvement results from techniques that allow computer processors to retrieve data more efficiently. Read more >>


NC State student Afsana Chowdhury develops tutorials for virtual computing infrastructure at FREEDM Center.FREEDM Center Opens Doors for Young Researchers

Inside the Green Energy Hub at the FREEDM Systems Center on NC State’s Centennial Campus, researchers ran into a problem while testing a prototype of an innovative battery charger that could charge electric vehicles more quickly. A resistor load bank that converted the charger’s electrical energy to heat during testing was overheating due to uneven airflow across the resistors. Read more >>
