Abstract—The two main sources of power dissipation in CMOS circuits are static current, which results from resistive paths between power supply and ground, and dynamic power, which results from switching capacitive loads between different voltage levels. Reducing power dissipation has become an important objective in the design of digital circuits. Because, for every 10 °C increase in operating temperature a component’ s failure rate is doubled. In this context, peak power for maximum possible power dissipation is a critical design factor as it determines the thermal and electrical limits of designs, impacts the system cost, size and weight, dictates specific battery type, component and system packaging and heat sinks, and aggravates the resistive and inductive voltage drop problems. It is therefore essential to have the peak power under control. The cross talk is dependent on the data transition patterns on the bus. The fact that power dissipation due to coupling transitions, is appreciably more (75%) than that due to self transitions (25%), necessitates the need for reducing the number of coupling transitions also. This makes the Bus Invert method incomplete in reducing the power dissipation. The simulation results of our work shows that the power dissipation in a bus is reduced about 28.02% with the proposed bus encoding technique.
