In this paper, a leakage power reduction technique for field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) is proposed based on the state dependency property of leakage power. A pin reordering algorithm is proposed, where the subthreshold and gate leakage power components are taken into consideration to find the lowest leakage state for the FPGA pass-transistor multiplexers in the logic and routing resources without incurring any physical or performance penalties. The newly developed methodology is applied… CONTINUE READING
