Technology mapping for low power in logic synthesis

  title={Technology mapping for low power in logic synthesis},
  author={Vivek Tiwari and Pranav Ashar and Sharad Malik},
Traditionally, three metrics have been used to evaluate the quality of logic circuits { size, speed and testability. Consequently, synthesis techniques have strived to optimize for one or more of these metrics, resulting in a large body of research in optimal logic synthesis. As a consequence of this research, we have today very powerful techniques for synthesis targeting area and testability; and to a lesser extent, circuit speed. The last couple of years have seen the addition of another… CONTINUE READING
