Subthreshold source-coupled logic (STSCL) circuits can be used in design of low-voltage and ultra-low power digital systems. This article introduces and analyzes new techniques for implementing complex digital systems using STSCL gates with an improved power-delay product (PDP) based on source-follower output stages. A test chip has been manufactured in a conventional digital 0.18μm CMOS technology to evaluate the performance of the proposed STSCL circuit, and speed and PDP improvements by a factor of up to 2.4 were demonstrated.
