    Low Power Tip of the Week: Decap cells Reply

    Some designers today add decoupling cells wherever they have space. The theory is "the more the better". However, decoupling cap (or decap cells for short) have high levels of leakage - adding too many leads to leakage power consumption. The trick is to add them in the right places, and the right amounts. Questions? Comments?
