Abstract

The designs of an asynchronous dual-rail domino logic (DRDL) and the conventional CMOS logic under near-threshold operation are compared. The delay time and energy consumption of an 8-bit full adder pipeline are simulated using HSPICE with 180-nm CMOS technology. The results show that, considering process variations, DRDL is faster than CMOS below 1.1 V. The delay performance of DRDL at 0.25 V is equivalent to that of CMOS at 0.4 V, while the energy-delay product of DRDL is 40% smaller than that of CMOS.
