A novel ratioed logic style for faster subthreshold digital circuits based on 90 nm CMOS and below

An innovative logic style is proposed to achieve faster logic propagation in subthreshold operation: the Active Controlled Ratioed Logic (ACRL). It is an complete improvement and optimization from previous ratioed logic styles with pull-up current control and modified branches tailored to very-low supply voltage and ultra-low power. Even without proper… CONTINUE READING
