High performance circuit techniques such as domino logic have migrated from the microprocessor world into more mainstream ASIC designs but domino logic comes at a heavy cost in terms of total power dissipation. A set of results related to automated phase assignment for the synthesis of low-power domino circuits is presented: (1) it is demonstrated that the choice of phase assignment at the primary outputs of a circuit can significantly impact lower dissipation in the domino block, and (2) a method to determine a phase assignment that minimises power consumption in the final circuit implementation is proposed. Preliminary experimental results on a mixture of public domain benchmarks and real industry circuits show potential power savings as high as 34% over the minimum area realisation of the logic. Furthermore, the low-power synthesised circuits still meet timing constraints
