In this paper, we present a noise-tolerant high-performance static circuit family suitable for low-voltage operation called skewed logic. Skewed logic circuits in comparison with Domino logic have better scalability and are more suitable for low voltage applications because of better noise margins. Skewed logic and its variations have been compared with Domino logic in terms of delay, power, and dynamic noise margin. A design methodology for skewed CMOS pipelined circuits has been developed. To demonstrate the applicability of the proposed logic style, 0.35 /spl mu/m 5.56 ns CMOS 16/spl times/16 bit multipliers have been designed using skewed logic circuits and fabricated through MOSIS. Measurement results show that the multiplier only consumed a power of 195 mW due to its low clock load.
