The yield of adiabatic circuits strongly depends on the effects of parameter variations on the power dissipation. The dispersion of the threshold voltage has the most important impact on the yield. Different effects on the energy consumption due to interdie and intra-die variations of the threshold voltage are presented. Three logic families, the Efficient(More)
Losses due to gate-leakage-currents become more dominant in new technologies as gate leakage currents increase exponentially with decreasing gate oxide thickness. The most promising Adiabatic Logic (AL) families use a clocked power supply with four states. Hence, the full V DD voltage drops over an AL gate only for a quarter of the clock cycle, causing a(More)
