Title: Integrated circuit low leakage power circuitry for use with an advanced CMOS process

Abstract: In one embodiment, the present invention provides a circuit that includes a core circuit and a control circuit coupled to the core circuit. The control circuit reduces a leakage current in the core circuit when the core circuit is in a Sleep mode. The control circuit maintains a logic state of the core circuit when the core circuit is in a Drowsy mode.
