This paper introduces a new approach to estimating static leakage current, which leads to the calculation of static power dissipation in basic and complex logic gates. The approach utilizes a transistor collapsing scheme which merges pull-up/down networks into transistor stacks. Leakage current in these stacks can then be easily estimated using a stack estimator proposed by Hertani, et al.. The proposed approach is highly analytical (at the logic gate level), therefore exhibiting high… CONTINUE READING
