Current density aware power switch placement algorithm for power gating designs

Abstract

Due to advances in manufacture technology, leakage current increases dramatically in modern ICs. Power gating technique is an efficient and effective method to resolve this problem. In order to turn off supply voltage in a low-power domain, it has to insert power switches into designs. However, chip area and IR-drop of circuits are impacted by the number… (More)
