Recently, power dissipation is becoming an important constraint in portable electronic systems. In this work, a new low-power current-sensing complementary pass-transistor logic (LCSCPTL) is proposed and analyzed. Since the current-sensing scheme can yield a fast sensing speed under small voltage swing than the voltage-sensing scheme, the new logic circuit can be used in the low-voltage low-power digital system for high speed applications. It is shown that the LCSCPTL has an operation speed about 2.2 to 2.6 times higher than the CPL, which is known to have a great potential in low-voltage low-power digital applications. Moreover, the LCSCPTL has less power dissipation than the CPL. These feature make the LCSCPTL very promising in the applications of low-power low-voltage high-speed applications. The LCSCPTL can be operated at 1.2V without changing conventional 5V CMOS process.
