Biologically-Inspired Optimization of Circuit Performance and Leakage: A Comparative Study

State-of-the-art technologies in very large scale integration (VLSI) allow for the realization of gates with varying energy consumptions and hence delays (i.e., processing speeds) in the very same circuit. By considering this technological advent as an option, the design process can pursue two different goals: (1) making the circuit as fast as possible and… CONTINUE READING
