Center for Low Energy Systems Technology One of six university research centers focused on next-generation microelectronics in the Semiconductor Technology Advanced Research Network (STARnet)
Center for Low Energy Systems Technology

Welcome to the Center for Low Energy Systems Technology

Led by the University of Notre Dame, the Center for Low Energy Systems Technology (LEAST) explored the physics of new materials and devices to enable more energy-efficient integrated circuits and systems.

A Look Back

To develop low-voltage and steep subthreshold swing components for beyond-CMOS electronic systems.

Established in 2013, the Center for Low Energy Systems Technology (LEAST) was a microelectronics research center funded by the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to support the continued growth and leadership of the U.S. semiconductor industry.

LEAST was led by the University of Notre Dame, with eleven partner universities exploring new concepts for energy-efficient devices to reduce power in electronic systems.

STARnetOther STARnet centers: C-FAR, C-SPIN, SONIC, FAME and TerraSwarm.
