Index Objective Basic idea Basic gating circuit and linear feedback shift register Design platform Final circuit Results Conclusion
Objective To reduce the power of 16-bit linear feedback shift register(LFSR) using gated clock. To measure the Average, Maximum and Minimum Power in Traditional 16-bit LFSR. To measure the Average, Maximum and Minimum Power in 16-bit gated clock LFSR.
What is Linear feedback shift register? A linear feedback shift register (LFSR) is a shift register whose input bit is a linear function of its previous state. For 16 bit LFSR-feedback polynomial is x 16 + x 14 + x 13 + x
Basic idea Since, in LFSR, the clock-path of all flip-flop toggles at every clock cycle, they consume a significant amount of power. To activate flip flop only when the input signal is different from the actual output value.

16 bit Linear feedback shift register with gated clock
Results Without clock gatingWith clock gating Maximum power mW mW Minimum power nW nW Average power mW4.913 mW
Conclusion Average power consumed has been decreased, whereas Minimum power has been increased which may be due to the initial power consumption at the time of initializing the LFSR.
