5 Design of Sleep Transistor:  It is a tradeoff between Saving in Leakage power and Speed  This method tries to Minimize Leakage power during sleep mode for a given delay penalty Anis, M., Shawki, A., Mahmoud,M., Elmasry, M., “ Dynamic And Leakage Power Reduction In MTCMOS Circuits Using An Automated Efficient Gate Clustering Technique”, Proc. of the 39th conference on Design Automation, June 2002, pp Delay of a Gate without Sleep transistor is given by Delay of a Gate with Sleep transistor is given by Where, α is Velocity Saturation Index (1< α < 2) α = 1.8 for 45nm 5/9/2015 5

6 Design of Sleep Transistor (Cont..): = ≈ 4800 This is obtained by simulating the ALU circuit and finding the Maximum current through GND The current flowing through Sleep transistor is expressed as Where, μ n = Electron mobility = 150 cm 2 /V.s at 90 o C C ox = 19.7 X F/m for 45nm V tL = V, V tH = V and VDD = 1.1 V for 45nm The Sleep transistor size is then obtained as 5/9/ Allowing 5% overhead on delay

8 Experiment Setup :  The 32-bit ALU circuit is tested for 200 random vectors of 65 bit each  The vectors are applied with to the circuit in following modes 200 vectors with Sleep = 1 i.e. Active Mode 200 vectors with Sleep = 0 i.e. Sleep Mode 200 vectors with Sleep changing from 1  0 after 100 vectors to get Sleep time 200 vectors with Sleep changing from 0  1 after 100 vectors to get Wakeup time  During Sleep mode with 200 vectors a ‘Minimum Leakage’ power consuming vector is identified 5/9/ Some of Results from this experiment have been shown in following slides.
