DRAM based on Self Controllable Voltage Level Technique for Leakage Power in VLSI

(M.Tech) VLSI, Dept. of ECE
Associate Professor, Dept. of ECE Priyadarshini Institute of Technology & Management

Today trend is circuit characterized by reliability, low power dissipation, low leakage current, low cost and there is required to reduce each of these. Increase of chip complexity is consistently higher for memory circuits. The salient features such as low power, reliable performance, circuit techniques for high speed such as using dynamic circuits, and low leakage current, most of these have get give a better advantage. Power must be added to the portable unit, even when power is available in non-portable applications, the issue of low-power design is becoming critical. Thus, it is evident that methodologies for the design of high-throughput, low-power digital systems are needed. Since there is no additional circuitry needed for power reduction in this circuit design technique, there is no additional circuitry needed for power reduction Here 3T DRAM is implementing with self controllable voltage level (svl) technique is for reducing leakage current in 0.12um technology. The simulation is done by using microwind 3.1 & dsch2 and gives the advantage of reducing the leakage current up to 57%.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
