Implicit pseudo boolean enumeration algorithms for input vector control
In a CMOS combinational logic circuit, the subthreshold leakage current in the standby state depends on the state of the inputs. In this paper we present a new approach to identify the minimum leakage set of input vectors (MLS). Applying a vector in the MLS is known as Input Vector Control (IVC), and has proven to be very useful in reducing gate oxide leakage and sub-threshold leakage in standby mode of operation. The approach presented here is based on Implicit Enumeration of integer-valued decision diagrams. Since the search space for minimum leakage vector increases exponentially with the number of primary inputs, the enumeration is done with respect to the minimum balanced cut of the digraph representation of the circuit. To reduce the switching power dissipated when the inputs are driven to a given state (during entry into and exit from the standby state), we extend the MLS algorithm to compute a bounded leakage set (BLS). Given a bound of standby leakage, we present an algorithm...
