A Static Sleep Convention Logic (SSCL) circuit is described. The circuit improves upon Multi-Threshold NULL Convention Logic (MTNCL), disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 7,977,972, by utilizing the SECRII architecture along with the Bit-Wise MTNCL technique, to produce a new SSCL gate without an nsleep input, which yields a smaller and faster circuit that utilizes less energy per operation than the patented SMTNCL gate design, while only very slightly increasing leakage power during sleep mode.
