Development of Ultra-low-power FPGA with Fine-Grained Field-Programmable Threshold Voltage Control

Research Project Outline

While FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) has been adopted as an important compornent in wide range of application fields from supercomputers to information appliances, increase of static power consumption caused by leakage current has become an important design issue in future FPGA. In this project, "Flex Power FPGA", an ultra-low-power FPGA with fine-grained field-programmable control of the threshold voltage of the transistors, is developed aiming at 1/100 reduction of the static power consumption.
