Abstract

On a printed circuit board (PCS) populated with a number of memory devices, only a Small number are in an active state at a time. It is, therefore, advantageous to reduce standby power requirements of the in- active memory devices. Not only does this contribute in reduced heat dissipation costs, but also results in a reduction of system (PCS) bussing and associated components requirement.
