Wave-pipelining, or maximum rate pipelining, is a circuit design technique which allows digital synchronous systems to be clocked at rates higher than can be achieved with conventional pipelining techniques by relying on the predictable finite delay through combinational logic for virtual da ta storage. Previous wave-pipelining research has demonstrated the performance potential of wave-pipelining of digital circuits; speed-ups of 2x to 7x have been achieved [5, 7, 2, 4, 8, 141.
