In this paper we describe and evaluate a 3D hybrid power management architecture which makes use of Nano-Electro-Mechanical Field Effect Transistors (NEMFET) as power switches that cut-off the power supply of inactive blocks. 3D stacking combines the appealing extremely low leakage currents of the NEMFETs with the versatility of CMOS technology by
