- We describe the design of an nRERL microprocessor for
ultra-low-energy applications. nRERL (nMOS Reversible Energy
Recovery Logic) is a new reversible adiabatic logic circuit using only
nMOS transistors, which can be operated at the leakage-current level
. We focus on two main issues; first, the design of a full adiabatic
microprocessor, which uses only adiabatic components for all the
functional blocks, second, the energy consumption of the nRERL
microprocessor including its clocked power generator (CPG).
With the experimental results, the nRERL microprocessor
consumed 26.22 pJ at 440 kHz.
