National Semiconductor CEO Meets with President Bush
President and CEO Brian Halla of National Semiconductor Corp. (Santa Clara, CA) met with President George W. Bush, vice-president Dick Cheny and their staffs on Thursday, June 28, 2001, to discuss energy-saving technologies. During the session at the Department of Energy, Halla demonstrated the power savings of a thin-client computing system, as compared to a standard personal computer.
"Thin clients consume about 80 percent less energy than personal computers while providing the same look, feel and benefits of a PC," said Halla. "They are an ideal energy-saving solution for businesses, governments, schools, hospitals, airports -- any enterprise that wants to deploy reliable technology that conserves power."
