Company Profile, Products & Technologies, Target Market:

IHPC promotes and spearheads scientific advances and technological innovations through computational modelling, simulation and visualisation methodologies and tools.

Our vision is to provide leadership in high performance computing as a strategic resource for scientific inquiry and industry development.

Brief description of proposed R&D project:

Green Communications Consortium – Currently, Information & Communication Technology (ICT) such as wireless communications require about 8% of total global energy consumption and that is equivalent of 2.5% carbon emission. If unchanged, the ICT energy consumption will increase to about 15% in 10 years’ time. In view of this, the US and European Communities have set up partnerships in consortium to address these ICT challenges. In Asia, in particular, Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC), A*STAR, Singapore, takes the initiative to form this consortium whereby IHPC will develop a simulation tool that supports in optimizing the radio base stations, which contribute to more than 50% of total energy consumption for mobile communications. The developed simulation tool will assist in cutting the power consumption through customizing the (1) Antenna (Transmitter), (2) Detector (Receiver), (3) Modulation (Baseband) and (4) Power Amplifiers (Electronics).

Ultimately, this consortium aims towards commercialization of the researched software algorithm to reduce power consumption of the Radio Base Stations (RBS) with Activistar Pte Ltd, Zephyr Corporation, Japan and Sunlabob International, Lao.

IHPC has proposed a novel approach of a holistic solution using adaptive power model which is to be developed by software algorithm to evaluate energy efficiency (EE) and reduce power consumption at the RBS. This software algorithm aims to commercialize development work from the component level to network deployment of the entire mobile communications instead of focusing only on individual component level.

Role of Requesting Company in Proposed R&D Project:

IHPC will develop the software for energy saving solution of radio based stations.

Desired Profile of R&D Partner and its role in the proposed project:

Any company who is interested in Green Communications for telecommunications.

R&D Partner Search

SIIRD promotes, facilitates and funds joint industrial R&D collaboration between Singapore-based companies and Israel-based companies.

R&D Partner Search Request Form

Please complete the 'R&D Partner Search Request Form' if your company is interested to search for technology partner in Singapore or Israel for joint R&D collaboration.

Our offices in Singapore and Israel will attempt to do a matching and make initial contact with any company which might be of interest to you.

The form will only be used for the purpose of matching potential R&D collaboration partners in Singapore and Israel under the SIIRD programme.

Companies who have been matched and who would like to jointly apply for funding for research and development  activities can do so by following the instructions in the  Proposal Submission page.

Alternatively, companies can refer to the lists of companies from Singapore and Israel who have indicated interest to look for R&D partners. Please contact the SIIRD Management if you have identified suitable partners from the lists and we will link you up with the relevant parties. Please refer to the hyperlinks above for access to the lists.

"The SIIRD program has enabled Kamedis to develop a unique product in cooperation with APN Singapore. We believe that the program has contributed the optimal framework for such cooperation and the SIIRD team has provided tremendous support at all stages of the process."
