The analysis is based on the Logical Effort (LE). The LE model used in this work was extracted from SPICE simulation for the TMSC 0.18um process. The performance and energy dissipation of circuits implemented with this approach is 13% and 16% respectively better than circuits designed with previously proposed approaches.
