It is a expenive and too complicated for just a true shutdown.

It is not a very difficult design if FET is allowed to be added in the power path. Many new boost converters indeed manipulate the P-Well of the synchronous switch (yes, the solution is only suitable for synchronous boost converter) so that the body diode is eliminated when the part is in shut down. This can improve the overall efficiency and save you board space.

Any technical document about this true shutdown circuit? E.g. how can we use it for our own designs?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
