power gating

Power gating, like clock gating, is a technique used in power management (PM) to reduce the power consumption of mobile computers

. Power gating aims to reduce leakage currents in chips with high integration density and structure widths of less than 100 nm. Power gating involves temporarily turning off the power supply to functional units that are not in use, thereby reducing leakage currents.
