A circuit technique to reduce threshold voltage fluctuation by a use of self-substrate-bias is introduced. The substrate bias is controlled so that leakage current of a representative MOSFET is adjusted constant with a feedback loop. The threshold voltage can be controlled within ±0.05 V and the speed gains under 1.5 V and 1V VDD are estimated to be a factor of 1.3 and 3, respectively. A test chip is fabricated and effectiveness of the scheme is investigated
