Benton Calhoun and David Brooks. 7/2010. “Can Subthreshold and Near-Threshold Circuits Go Mainstream?” Micro, IEEE, 30, 4, Pp. 80–85. Publisher's Version


Recent research has shown the potential benefits of subthreshold or near-threshold operation, which gives up a substantial degree of speed in order to reduce energy per operation. This is an excellent trade-off for many tasks, such as cyberphysical systems. This prolegomenon summarizes the benefits and challenges of subthreshold or near-threshold operation.
