    Abstract

    The paper discusses the application of floating gate techniques to Wilson current mirror to reduce power dissipation. With floating gate technique, it is possible to modify the effective threshold voltage of the MOSFET. This will be helpful in reducing the leakage current. This technique is also useful in reducing the power supply voltage required for a MOSFET to operate in a saturation region, which in turn minimizes the dynamic power dissipation. The proposed circuit is simulated using HSPICE for 0.18um CMOS technology and the results are compared with those obtained for simple Wilson current mirror circuit.
