Design of the Power Switching Network

Power gating is the most effective method for reducing leakage power in standby or sleep mode. However, this method comes with overhead such as the silicon area taken by the sleep transistors, the routing resources for permanent and virtual power networks, and the complex power-gating design and implementation processes which impact design risk and schedule.
