Reverse body biasing (RBB) is often used to reduce the leakage power of a device. However, recent research has shown that if this applied RBB is too high, the leakage power can actually increase due to the contribution of Band-to-Band Tunneling (BTBT) currents. Hence, there exists an optimal RBB value at which the leakage is minimum. This optimum point can… CONTINUE READING
