A new high-speed domino circuit, called HS-Domino has been developed. HS-Domino resolves the tradeoff between performance and reliability in conventional CD-domino logic while dissipating low dynamic power with minimal area overhead. HS-Domino, therefore, extends domino's operation in the deep submicron regime. A multithreshold implementation of HS-Domino is also devised to achieve substantially low leakage values during standby, while maintaining high performance and low power during the active mode. Furthermore, the generic multithreshold scheme is applied to differential cascode voltage switch (DDCVS) logic.
