A cross-coupled inverter which is an essential element of on-chip memory subsystems plays an important role in synchronous LSI circuits. In this paper, an analytical stability model for a cross-coupled inverter operating in a sub-threshold voltage region is proposed. The proposed model analytically shows that the minimum operating voltage of the(More)
This paper proposes a standard-cell based memory (SCM) as an alternative to a traditional on-chip SRAM for near-threshold voltage computing. It focuses on area- and energy-efficiency using minimum height standard-cells. Unlike conventional SCMs, the proposed SCM has standard-cells with a minimum possible cell height allowed by the logic design rule of the(More)
Near-threshold computing has emerged as a promising solution for drastically improving the energy efficiency of microprocessors. This paper proposes architectural-level statistical static timing analysis (SSTA) models for the near-threshold voltage computing where the path delay distribution is approximated as a lognormal distribution. First, we prove(More)
