Two new power-saving schemes for high-performance VLSIs with a large-scale memory and many interface signals are described. One is a current-controlled latch sense amplifier that reduces the power dissipation by stopping sense current automatically. This sense amplifier reduces power without degrading access time compared with the conventional current-mirror sense amplifier. The other is a static power-saving input buffer (SPSIB) that reduces DC current in interface circuits receiving TTL high input level. The effectiveness of these new circuits is demonstrated with a 512-kb high-speed SRAM
