In this paper, we present a new approach to the problem of inverter elimination in domino logic synthesis. A small piece of static CMOS logic is introduced to the circuit to avoid significant area penalty resulting from duplication. To maximize the domino logic part and to minimize the static CMOS logic part, a generalized automatic test pattern generation (ATPG)-based logic transformation is proposed to eliminate or relocate a target inverter. Based on the new concept of dominating set of mandatory assignment (DSMA) and the corresponding implication graph, we propose algorithms to identify a minimum candidate set for a target inverter. Experimental results show that logic transformation based on the implication graph can reduce transistor counts by 25% on average, while the delay increases less than 3%
