Node Transition Activity

Low Activity XOR Function

GLITCH (Spurious transitions) • 15 -20% of the total power is due to glitching.

Glitches

Hazard Generation in Logic Circuits • Static hazard: A transient pulse of width w (= the delay of the inverter). • Dynamic hazard: the transient consists of three edges, two rising and one falling with w of two units. • Each input can have several arriving paths.

High-Performance Power. Distribution • (S: Switching probability; C: Capacitance) • Start with all logic at the lowest power level; then, successive iterations of delay calculation, identifying the failing blocks, and powering • up are done until either all of the nets pass their delay criteria or the • maximum power level is reached. • Voltage drops in ground and supply wires use up a more serious fraction of the total noise margin

Logic Transformation • • Use a signal with low switching activity to reduce the activity on a highly active signal. Done by the addition of a redundant connection between the gate with low activity (source gate) to the gate with a high switching activity (target gate). Signals a, b, and g 1 have very high switching activity and most of time its value is zero Suppose c and g 1 are selected as the source and target of a new connection ` 1 is undetectable, hence the function of the new circuit remains the same. Signal c has a long run of zero, and zero is the controlling value of the and gate g 1 , most of the switching activities at the input of g 1 will not be seen at the output, thus switching activity of the gate g 1 is reduced. The redundant connection in a circuit may result in some irredundant connections becoming redundant. By adding ` 1 , the connections from c to g 3 become redundant.

GATED-CLOCK D-FLIP-FLOP • Flip- op present a large internal capacitance on the internal clock node. • If the DFF output does not switch, the DFF does not have to be clocked.

Design. Power Gate Level Power Model 1. Switching Power 1. Power dissipated when a load capacitance(gate+wire) is charged or discharged at the driver’s output 2. If the technology library contains the correct capacitance value of the cell and if capacitive_load_unit attribute is specified then no additional information is needed for switching power modeling 3. Output pin capacitance need not be modeled if the switching power is incorporated into the internal power

Design. Power Gate Level Power Model ◈ Internal Power 4 power dissipated internal to a library cell 4 Modeled using energy lookup table indexed by input transition time and output load 4 Library cells may contain one or more internal energy lookup tables

Design. Power Gate Level Power Model ◈ Leakage Power 4 Leakage power model supports a signal value for each library cell 4 State dependent leakage power is not supported

Operand Isolation • Combinational logic dissipates significant power when output is unused • Inputs to combination logic held stable when output is unused
