Low Power Circuit Design Techniques: A Survey
In this paper, the authors present a detail on various techniques to realize low voltage low power circuit. The techniques discussed are conventional Gate-Driven (GD), Floating Gate (FG), Quasi-Floating Gate (QFG), Bulk-Driven (BD), and BD-QFG. The comparative analysis results in best performance achieved by BD-QFG approach. As BD circuits are well known approach for low power design, the combined effect QFG in bulk driven circuit results in enhanced performance. The complete analysis has been carried out in industry specific node UMC 0.18 micron technology with the help of HSpice simulator.
