Have you ever heard about a technology of smart phone that is called subconscious mode? Actually, such a technique is also possible to be realized in some wireless portable devices. It is said that in the busiest network, the standby time of lithium-ion batteries is possible to be extended by at least 50%, which is released by University of Michigan not long ago.
When the smart phone has entered into energy-saving mode, even if the users haven’t sent or received the messages actively, the lithium-ion batteries will also prepare to carry out the tasks. According to Kang Shin and his student in Michigan University, such an idle listening mode will consume a lot of power energy. When the cell phone has entered into entered into energy-saving mode, the consumption can also reach about 80%. Comparatively, a new solution about smart phone has invented that is called E-MiLi, Energy-Minimizing Idle Listening.
To figure out how much time has been spent by cell phone when keeping vigilantly, the researchers have done some extensive tracking surveys towards WiFi network. According to the different network flows, it will cost about 60-80% time for portable devices for idle protected reliably against detective conditions.
The operation principle of E-MiLi is that the cell phone can enter into full speed when the messages have come while the running rate can be reduced to be about 1/16 in regular time when the wireless network is in the idle state. It is a common way for lithium-ion batteries to save more power energy. However, it is hard for cell phone to figure out if the message is coming in the process of low speed conditions. To be fortunate, such a problem has already been solved successfully.
The researchers have found that this subconscious mode E-MiLi can be compatible to energy-saving mode, which can save about 45% consumption from most of wireless portable consumer electronics in the market. This technique needs to load the new processor deceleration software. Taking advantage of this hardware, it can be applied into cell phone, desktop and laptop computers well. At present, Michigan University has applied for this patent and search for cooperative partners to popularize this technology.
