Annotation This paper shows an overall performance comparative analysis in terms of Average Power Consumption, Average Delay and Power-Delay Product for an 8 bit Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU) using bulk MOS, Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) and Silicon-on-Nothing (SON) technology. The entire design is done in 32nm technology for all the three cases (Bulk, SOI & SON) and then compared. The comparisons have been carried out with the help of the simulation runs on Synopsys HSpice tool, and that clearly indicates, for lower Supply Voltages (Vdd), SOI / SON technology provides a significant reduction in Average Power Consumption, Average Delay and Power-Delay Product compared to that of Bulk MOS technology.
