Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper describes a performance-driven approach to module generation for static combinational CMOS logic circuits. Our flexible layout style supports implementation of fast and reliable circuits. Improvement in circuit speed is achieved through minimization of diffusion and interconnection capacitance, transistor sizing, and transistor reordering. By integrating transistor sizing and reordering steps in the layout process, we achieve fine-grain optimization. Experimental results are included.
