Several techniques that make possible the dynamic variation of analog circuits internally, without affecting their input-output characteristics were reviewed. As such, a mixture of more than one of these techniques was appropriate in some cases. By allowing for dynamic internal variations, the power dissipation of such circuits can be lowered and can be made to depend on how demanding the task at hand was. This allows for large savings of energy drain over time, thus making possible long battery life in portable equipment.
