In a speed-adaptive threshold-voltage CMOS (SA-Vt CMOS) circuit, the substrate bias is controlled so that delay in the circuit stays constant. Distributions of device speeds are squeezed under fast-operation conditions. With a ring oscillator using 0.25-µm CMOS devices as a test circuit, we found that the worst-case operating frequency was improved(More)
A hierarchical power distribution methodology that enables more than dozen power domains in a chip and a power management scheme using 20 power domains are described. This method can achieve very low leakage current in the partial active mode of a single chip mobile processor. The single chip mobile processor embedded three CPU's that is baseband processor,(More)
