In this paper, a novel low-power design technique is proposed to minimize the standby leakage power in nanoscale CMOS very large scale integration (VLSI) systems by generating the adaptive optimal reverse body-bias voltage. The adaptive optimal body-bias voltage is generated from the proposed leakage monitoring circuit, which compares the subthreshold current (I SUB) and the band-to-band tunneling (BTBT) current (I BTBT). The proposed circuit was simulated in HSPICE using 32-nm bulk CMOS…
