Abstract

We have developed a domino logic synthesis system with a new technology mapping algorithm based on a bin packing algorithm that reduces the levels of the circuits and considers the complexity of domino primitive cells. Domino logic circuits have 20-50% performance advantage over static circuits. By using this system, designing domino logic circuits becomes much easier than manual design. The primary reason is that logic design is completely automated by the system. The second reason is that domino primitive cell layout is simplified by our new technology mapping algorithms that considers the complexity of domino primitive cells.
