Delay Minimal Decomposition of Multiplexers in Technology Mapping
Technology mapping requires the unmapped logic network to be represented in terms of base functions, usually two-input NORs and inverters. Technology decomposition is the step that transforms arbitrary networks to this form. Typically, such decomposition schemes ignore the fact that certain circuit elements can be mapped more eciently by treating them separately during decomposition. Multiplexers are one such category of circuit elements. They appear very naturally in circuits, in the form of datapath elements and as a result of synthesis of CASE statements in HDL speci cations of control logic. Mapping them using multiplexers in technology libraries has many advantages. In this paper, we give an algorithm for optimally decomposing multiplexers, so as to minimize the delay of the network, and demonstrate its eectiveness in improving the quality of mapped circuits.
