BDD-based synthesis of extended burst-mode controllers
Abstract—We examine the implications of a new hazard-free combinational logic synthesis method [1], which generates multiplexor-based networks from binary decision diagrams (BDDs...

Optimizing dominant time constant in RC circuits
— Conventional methods for optimal sizing of wires and transistors use linear resistor-capacitor (RC) circuit models and the Elmore delay as a measure of signal delay. If the RC ...

Fast heuristic and exact algorithms for two-level hazard-free logic minimization
None of the available minimizers for 2-level hazard-free logic minimization can synthesize very large circuits. This limitation has forced researchers to resort to manual and auto...

Address generation for memories containing multiple arrays
This paper presents techniques for generating addresses for memories containing multiple arrays. Because these techniques rely on the inversion or rearrangement of address bits, t...

Behavioral optimization using the manipulation of timing constraints
— We introduce a transformation, named rephasing, that manipulates the timing parameters in control-data-flow graphs (CDFG’s) during the high-level synthesis of data-pathinten...

Structural methods for the synthesis of speed-independent circuits
Most existing tools for the synthesisof asynchronouscircuits from Signal Transition Graphs (STGs) derive the reachability graph for the calculation of logic equations. This paper ...

High-precision interconnect analysis
— Integrated circuits have evolved to a stage where interconnections significantly limit their performance and functional complexity. We introduce a set of tools to perform high...

Probabilistic modeling of dependencies during switching activity analysis
—This paper addresses, from a probabilistic point of view, the issue of switching activity estimation in combinational circuits under the zero-delay model. As the main theoretica...

Cost-free scan: a low-overhead scan path design
Conventional scan design imposes considerable area and delay overhead by using larger scan ip- ops and additional scan wires without utilizing the functionality of the combinatio...

Test-point insertion: scan paths through functional logic
—Conventional scan design imposes considerable area and delay overheads. To establish a scan chain in the test mode, multiplexers at the inputs of flip-flops and scan wires are...
