Subthreshold logic circuits are one of promising solutions to achieve ultra-low power operation. However, subthreshold circuits are significantly sensitive to manufacturing and environmental variability. In this paper, we will discuss design challenges in subthreshold logic circuits, such as rise in a minimum operating voltage, signal integrity degradation, and large delay variations.
