  author={Saed G. Younis and Thomas F. Knight},
Energy dissipation of CMOS circuits is becoming a major concern in the design of digital systems. Earlier, we presented a new form of CMOS charge recovery logic (SCRL), with an energy dissipation per operation that falls linearly with operating frequency, as opposed to the constant energy required for conventional CMOS circuits 1]. These SCRL circuits, along with most adiabatic circuit techniques proposed to date, require a set of gradually swinging power supply rails that in eeect force all… CONTINUE READING
