This paper describes a 16-bit microprocessor using circuit and process technology that realize static operation considering low-power consumption. The microprocessor so called V30HL achieved 4 times of performance per a unit power consumption as well as kept a complete software/hardware compatibility with standard 16-bit microprocessors. Also, the microprocessor operates in the range of DC-8 MHz for 2.7-5.5 V supply.
