Abstract

Key technologies for portable equipment are low-voltage operation, low power consumption, and protocol-flexibility. Ferroelectric technology can contribute nonvolatility and flexibility to the portable systems. In this chapter, process technologies for low-voltage operation are first described. Then, nonvolatile logic circuits are introduced for low power consumption. Several nonvolatile latch circuits, which are basic elements of powering off LSIs, are shown. We also discuss reconfigurable architecture using ferroelectric technologies.
