Gating Technique, Back Biasing, FET, Multi-Threshold Devices, Power Dissipation


The paper investigates different level of techniques used for power reduction in VLSI. Before,
most of the researches were oriented towards bringing about high speed and miniaturization.
At present, because of the increasing trend of compact devices, the requirement for low power
consuming circuits have also increased. This necessitates the need to align the research for
reducing power dissipation in VLSI circuits. In the given paper we will briefly discuss about
the different types of power reduction techniques at design abstraction level which are adopted
in industries now-a-days. The comparison of traditional techniques and present techniques
are also covered in this paper.
