  • Introduces fabrication and operation of CMOS circuits at transistor, gate and circuit level
  • Discusses different aspects of low-power circuit synthesis at various levels of design hierarchy
  • Includes realization of adiabatic switching circuits
  • Presents battery-aware synthesis in view of the proliferation of battery-operated portable system
  • Discusses software based approaches to achieve lower power dissipation
  • Each chapter provides abstract and keywords in the beginning and ends with chapter summary, review questions and references to satisfy pedagogical requirements of a textbook

The book provides a comprehensive coverage of different aspects of low power circuit synthesis at various levels of design hierarchy; starting from the layout level to the system level. For a seamless understanding of the subject, basics of MOS circuits has been introduced at transistor, gate and circuit level; followed by various low-power design methodologies, such as supply voltage scaling, switched capacitance minimization techniques and leakage power minimization approaches. The content of this book will prove useful to students, researchers, as well as practicing engineers.
