Asynchronous spatial computing systems exhibit only localized communication, their overall data-flow being controlled by handshaking. It is therefore straightforward to determine when a particular part of such a system is active. We show that using thin-body double-gate fully depleted SOI transistors, the shift in threshold voltage that can be produced by modulating the back-gate bias is sufficient to reduce subthreshold leakage power by a factor of more than 104 in typical circuits. Using TBFDSOI devices in spatial computing architectures will allow overall power to be greatly reduced while maintaining high performance.
