Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In low power analog circuit designs, the current variation caused by the STI stress must be taken into
account. In this paper, we address an energy trade-off related to the STI stress in the design of a comparator
composed of the pre-amplifier and the conventional latch. The power consumption of the pre-amplifier can be
forumlated as a function of the diffusion length of MOSFETs when considering the STI stress. The longer diffusion
length tends to make the power lower. On the other hand, the power to drive the latch is associated with the
parasitic capacitance at the output of the pre-amplifier, so shorter diffusion is preferable. To cope with the tradeoff,
we provide the energy model of the comparator based on the geometric programming. In the HSPICE simulation
with the STI BSIM model, we reveal that the impact of STI stress on the energy becomes significant especially in
low power designs.
