Resum
As technology evolves, power density increases and cooling systems become more complex and expensive. There are two main sources of power dissipation in a processor: dynamic power and leakage. Dynamic power has been the most significant factor but leakage will become increasingly significant in future. It is predicted that leakage will be soon the most significant cost as leakage grows at a 5X rate per generation. Thus, reducing leakage is essential for future high-performance processors design....
