This paper proposes a resonant supply noise canceller utilizing parasitic capacitance of sleep blocks. It has small area penalty because we use sleep blocks for noise cancelling. Measurement results show that the test chip fabricated in a 0.18um CMOS process achieved 43.3% and 12.5% supply noise reduction on the abrupt supply voltage switching and the abrupt wake-up of a sleep block, respectively.These results make fast switching of power mode possible for dynamic voltage scaling and power gating.
