Low-Powered Self-Timed Pipeline with Variable-Grain Power Gating and Suspend-Free Voltage Scaling


This paper describes a variable-grain power gating and suspend-free voltage scaling scheme based on the self-timed pipeline (STP) circuits. The STP operates with its local hand-shake signal so that it does not require the global clock distribution, i.e., centralized control. Therefore, various power supply control for the STP can be naturally localized in… (More)
