A pulsed-latch is an ideal sequencing element for low-power ASIC designs due to its smaller capacitance and simple timing model. Clock gating of pulsed-latch circuits can be realized by gating a pulse generator (or pulser), which we call pulser gating. The problem of pulser gating synthesis is formulated for the first time. Given a gate-level netlist with location of latches, we first extract the gating function of each latch; the gating functions are merged to reduce the amount of extra logic… CONTINUE READING
