Title: Low Power Design for Integrated Circuits and Systems

Speaker:  Dr. Zoran Stamenković, IHP, GmbH, Frankfurt (Oder), Germany.

Abstract:

Standard low power techniques have been developed for mature integrated circuit technologies where dynamic power was considered to be the main source of power consumption. These techniques focus on reduction of the supply voltage, switching activity and load capacitance. They can be classified in the five groups: supply voltage scaling, clock frequency scaling, clock gating, operand isolation and gate level optimization.

Over the years, the supply voltage has been scaling down with the technology keeping the power consumption under control. In order to maintain high driving currents and to improve performance, the threshold voltage has been scaling down as well. The reduction of threshold voltage contributed to the increase of subthreshold leakage current. Advanced low power techniques have been developed to deal with the increasing contribution of leakage currents to the total power consumption in deep-submicron CMOS. These techniques reduce the leakage currents by controlling the voltages of transistor terminals (source, gate and body). They can be classified in the four groups: multi supply voltage design, multi clock frequency design (GALS), power gating and body biasing.
