Sub-threshold: A Design Technique for Ultra-Low Power Operation

Vinay Kumar Pandey, Divakar Tamang, Angana Saikia, Sudip Paul



This paper makes forward a technique called sub-threshold region and its implementation on the basic logic gates like inverter and NAND logic gate etc. The parameter like Power, Delay and Power-Delay Product of the basic gates has been computed. The result obtained shows the ultra-low power operation, the device is operated in sub-threshold region. All the simulations have been performed in CADENCDE Virtuoso Environment using gpdk 180 nm technology node and keeping the supply voltage at 0.2 V.

Keywords: Sub-threshold; inverter; NAND; power; delay; power-delay product; ultra-low power
