Optimization for power is always one of the most important design objectives in modern nanometer IC design. Recent studies have shown the effectiveness of applying multi-bit flip-flops to save the power consumption of the clock network. However, all the previous works applied multi-bit flip-flops at earlier design stages, which could be very difficult to carry out the trade-off among power, timing, and other design objectives. This paper presents a novel power optimization method by… CONTINUE READING
