A new "Asynchrobatic" low-power logic design style is presented. Its name is a shortening of the concatenation of the two fields of low-power research that it attempts to join. It uses the low-power benefits of an Asynchronous controller to drive a wide data-path of quasi-Adiabatic elements. Results show that in applications with a high switch rate, for example DSP, it is more efficient than a 32-bit asynchronous data-path. It also becomes more efficient as data-path widths are increased.
