Power Reduction At RTL: Data Gating Adders And Multipliers

In our previous blog, “Low Power Paradox”, we discussed the implications of the move to FinFET technology. Dynamic power is dominant in finFET designs. Several techniques are available to reduce dynamic power consumption. Microarchitecture changes are one method and they can result in significant power savings. One technique that is frequently used is the data gating of adders and m... » read more
