The minimum operating voltage (V<sub>min</sub>) of nano-scale LSIs is investigated, focusing on logic gates, SRAM cells, and DRAM sense amplifiers in LSIs. The V<sub>min</sub> that is governed by SRAM cells rapidly increases as devices are miniaturized due to the ever-larger variation of the threshold voltage (V<sub>T</sub>) of MOSFETs. The V<sub>min</sub>,(More)
