 Project objective

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the up and coming growth engine for the global economy. But, IoT comes with a great challenge: tens of billions connected devices will generate an exabyte-level (1 exabyte = 1 billion gigabytes) amount of data each day, all of which needs to be processed and wirelessly transmitted in an energy efficient way.

This creates a large and untapped global business opportunity for technologies that could bring radical increase in digital computing energy efficiency, while simultaneously increasing the IoT computing capacity. Otherwise, the amount of generated data will overwhelm the current cloud computing centres. Energy efficiency is needed because the prospect of regularly changing batteries on tens of billions of devices is impractical and very costly, whereas hardwiring every IoT device is not feasible either.

Minima Processor Oy, a Finnish high-tech SME backed with €2,2 million seed investment, is introducing the next computing power revolution: Minima patented IoT microprocessor technology that reduces the energy need of digital computing by up to 20x compared to legacy solutions. Minima’s disruptive technology can enhance the performance of virtually any device that uses digital computing, thereby making batteries last up to 20 times longer, enabling advanced features, and making IoT devices cheaper to buy and operate.

Minima technology has broken world records in microprocessor energy efficiency. The objective of the Phase 2 project is disrupt the IoT market with our fundamentally new technology by finalising our hardware and software development, implementing next generation audio, video and deep learning techniques, and piloting our solution in 3 commercial applications.

Minima technology is the key to securing Europe’s leading position in the IoT microprocessor industry. Having already signed pre-commercial licensing agreements with industry leaders, we expect rapid market uptake within the first 5 years after the project.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "MINIMA" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
