Abstract-Digital designs can be mapped to different implementations using diverse approaches, with varying cost criteria. Post-processing transforms, such as transistor sizing, can significantly improve circuit performance by optimizing critical paths to meet timing specifications. However, most transistor sizing tools have high execution times, and the possible delay gains due to sizing, and the associated costs are not known prior to sizing. In this paper, we present two metrics for comparing different impl…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
