Energy Efficient Voltage Conversion Range of Multiple Level Shifter Design in Multi Voltage Domain


Level shifter is inserted between two modules when low voltage drives high voltage modules. Multi supply voltage is used to reduce the static and dynamic power consumption. Multi supply voltage domain technique consists of portioning the design into separate voltage domain. So the time critical domain runs at higher power supply voltage where non-critical domain is runs at lower power supply voltage. The conventional differential cascade voltage switch is the level shifter circuit. The conventional multi threshold CMOS (MTCMOS) greatly reduces the leakage power. But it does wide voltage conversion range is not achieved in level shifter design. So we use a multiple level shifter instead of single level shifter with multi threshold CMOS device. The multiple level shifter design can be achieved the conversion voltage range of 1V to 1.8V. The inter mediate power supply voltage of level shifter contains 400mV,600mV.800mV ranges of operation. It can be designed by using cadence 180nm technology. The synthesis results can be achieved in 310µW power supply.
