Limited switch dynamic logic (LSDL), a high performance logic circuit, has been modified by introducing a pseudo-nMOS style load. The resultant circuit consumes less power, primarily due to the reduction of capacitance on the clock network. The controlled-load LSDL is shown to be more robust to noise and power rail bounce. A 64-bit rotator circuit was used in the analysis. The effect of process variation on circuit performance is also evaluated.
