low voltage technology (logic) (LVT)

The supply voltages of logic circuits go quadratically to the power these circuits consume. The first RTL log ics required supply voltages of 3.6 V, and TTL and CMOS logics required as much as 5 V.

As the integration density of logics, processors and RAMs became higher and higher, the power consumption of the chips and RAMs also increased disproportionately. Last but not least, this increased the effort required for cooling. For these reasons, technologies were developed as early as the 1990s that could be operated with lower supply voltages. This Low Voltage Technology (LVT) operated at 3.3 V, 3.0 V and at 2.7 V.

Advanced Low Voltage Technology( ALVT) and later Ultra Low Voltage ( ULV) with supply voltages of 1.0 V to 1.3 V developed from this LVT technology at the end of the 1990s.
