Sleep transistors are effective to reduce leakage power during standby modes. The cluster-based design was proposed to save sleep transistor area by clustering gates to minimize the simultaneous switching current per cluster and inserting a sleep transistor per cluster. In this paper, we propose a novel distributed sleep transistor network (DSTN), and show that DSTN is intrinsically better than the cluster-based design in terms of the sleep transistor area and circuit performance. We reveal… CONTINUE READING
