Sub-threshold current

Dynamic Power Dissipation

Power Dissipation in CMOS


Static power dissipation

Static Power Dissipation

VDD

  • Leakage Current:

  • P-N junction reverse biased current:

  • io= is(eqV/kT-1)

  • Typical value 0.1nA to 0.5nA @room temp.

  • Total Power dissipation:

  • Psl= i0.VDD

  • Sub-threshold Current

  • Relatively high in low threshold devices

Analysis of cmos circuit power dissipation

Analysis of CMOS circuit power dissipation

  • The power dissipation in a CMOS logic gate can be

  • expressed as

  • P = Pstatic + Pdynamic

  • = (VDD · Ileakage) + (p · f · Edynamic)

  • Where p is the switching probability or activity factor

  • at the output node (i.e. the average number of output

  • switching events per clock cycle).

  • The dynamic energy consumed per output switching event is defined as

    Edynamic =

Analysis of CMOS circuit power dissipation

The first term —— the energy dissipation due to the

Charging/discharging of the effective load capacitance CL.

The second term —— the energy dissipation due to the input-to-output coupling capacitance. A rising input results in a VDD-VDD transition of the voltage across CM and so doubles the charge of CM.

CL = Cload + Cdbp +Cdbn

CM = Cgdn + Cgdp


The mosfet parasitic capacitances

The MOSFET parasitic capacitances

  • • distributed,

  • • voltage-dependent, and

  • • nonlinear.

  • So their exact modeling is quite complex.

Even ESC can be modeled, it is also difficult to calculate the Edynamic.

On the other hand, if the short-circuit current iSC can be Modeled, the power-supply current iDD may be modeled with the same method.

So there is a possibility to directly model iDD instead of iSC.

Analysis of short circuit current

Analysis of short-circuit current

The short-circuit energy dissipation ESC is due to the rail-to-rail current when both the PMOS and NMOS devices are simultaneously on.

ESC = ESC_C + ESC_n

Factors that affect the short circuit current

Factors that affect the short-circuit current

For a long-channel device, assuming that the inverter is symmetrical (n = p =  and VTn = -VTp = VT) and with zero load capacitance, and input signal has equal rise and fall times (r = f = ), the average short-circuit current [Veendrick, 1994] is

From the above equation, some fundamental factors that affect short-circuit current are:

 , VDD, VT,  and T.


Parameters affecting short cct current

Parameters affecting short cct current

For a short-channel device,  and VT are no longer constants, but affected by a large number of parameters (i.e. circuit conditions, hspice parameters and process parameters).

CL also affects short-circuit current.

Imean is a function of the following parameters (tox is process-dependent):

CL, , T (or /T), VDD, Wn,p, Ln,p (or Wn,p/Ln,p ), tox, …

The above argument is validated by the means of simulation in the case of discharging inverter,
