Wave-pipelining is a method of high-performance circuit design which implements pipelining in logic without the use of intermediate latches or registers. The combination of high-performance integrated circuit (IC) technologies, pipelined architectures, and sophisticated computer-aided design (CAD) tools has converted wave-pipelining from a theoretical oddity into a realistic, although challenging, VLSI design method. This paper presents a tutorial of the principles of wave-pipelining and a survey of wave-pipelined VLSI chips and CAD tools for the synthesis and analysis of wave-pipelined circuits.
