Nonvolatile power gating with MTJ based nonvolatile flip-flops for a microprocessor

Abstract

This paper describes an approach to combine spintransfer torque Magnetic Tunnel Junction (MTJ) based non-volatile flip-flops (NVFFs) with power gating techniques to enable anytime power-off and instant power-on. We analyzed the NVFFs which are expected to realize nonvolatile power gating (NVPG) for a microprocessor. We evaluated the NVFFs by the area, the… (More)
