Leakage power is projected to comprise approximately 50% of the processor's power for sub 65nm technologies. Much of this power is consumed in the processor's functional units. Accordingly, leakage control techniques are employed to reduce leakage in these functional units. Many of these techniques are dynamic and are based on an input sleep signal to initiate a low leakage mode. However, since most of these leakage control techniques are based on circuit level schemes, such techniques… CONTINUE READING
