Geyser-1 is a MIPS CPU which provides a fine-grained run-time power gating (PG) controlled by instructions. Unlike traditional PGs, it uses special standard cells in which the virtual ground (VGND) is separated from the real ground, and a certain number of the sleep transistors are inserted for quick power shut-down and wake-up. In Geyser-1, the(More)
Geyser-2 is the second prototype MIPS CPU which provides a fine-grained run-time power gating (PG) controlled by instructions. Geyser-1[1], the first prototype only provides the fine-grained run-time PG core. Although it demonstrated the leakage power reduction on a real chip, the operational frequency is limited at 60MHz because of the limitation of the(More)
