Abstract

Subthreshold source-coupled logic (STSCL) has been recently shown to be an advantageous logic style for ultra-low power applications. In the subthreshold region, STSCL provides improved power-delay performance and increased robustness over static CMOS logic. In this paper, we present a new timing error detection (TED) latch, or (TEDsc), which uses STSCL for detecting timing errors while using static CMOS logic for latching data. This allows for TEDsc to be easily integrated into a TED pipeline with static CMOS logic. At Vdd=300 mV, TEDsc consumes 40% less power than an all-static CMOS subthreshold-capable TED latch.
