In the previous work, the problem of nding gate delays to eliminate glitches has been solved by linear programs (LP) requiring an exponentially large number of constraints. By introducing two additional variables per gate, namely, the fastest and the slowest arrival times, besides the gate delay,we reduce the number of the LP constraints to be linear in circuit size. For example, the 469gate c880 circuit requires 3,611 constraints as compared to the 6.95 million constraints needed with the previous method. The reduced constraints provably produce the same exact LP solution as obtained by the exponential set of constraints. For the rst time, we are able to optimize all ISCAS'85 benchmarks. For the c7552 circuit, when the input to output delay is constrained not to increase, a design with 366 delay bu ers consumes only 34 % peak and 38 % average power as compared to an unoptimized design. As shown in previous work, the use of delay bu ers is essential in this case. The practicality of the design is demonstrated by implementing an optimized 4bit ALU circuit for which the power consumption was obtained by a circuitlevel simulator. 1.

Modern digital circuits consist of logic gates implemented in the complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology. The time taken for a logic gate output to change after one or more inputs have changed is called the delay of the gate. A conventional CMOS gate is designed to have the same input to output delay irrespective of which input caused the output to change. We propose a new gate design that has different delays along various input to output paths within the gate. This is accomplished by inserting selectively sized “permanently on ” series transistors at the inputs of the logic gate. We demonstrate the use of the variable input delay CMOS gates for a totally glitchfree minimum dynamic power implementation of a digital circuit. Applying a previously described linear programming method to the c7552 benchmark circuit, we obtained a power saving of 58 % over an unoptimized design. This power consumption was 18% lower than that for an alternative low power design using conventional CMOS gates. All circuits had the same overall delay. Since the overall delay was not allowed to increase, the glitch elimination with conventional gates required insertion of delay buffers on noncritical paths. The use of the variable input delay gates drastically reduced the required number of delay buffers. 1

These papers focus on the development of low power VLSI design methodology on system level modeling and circuit level modeling for power optimization. The developed transition optimization approach further merged with circuit level power optimization using Glitch minimization technique. A resistive feed back method is developed for the elimination of glitches in the CMOS circuitry, which result in power consumption and reducing performance of VLSI design. The optimized sequence is then processed through a 8bit register bank modeled in CMOS level for data transfer to observe the glitch effect. Tanner EDA tool is used for the designing of the CMOS circuitry with resistive feedback mechanism for power optimization.

A glitch compensation methodology is proposed in this paper which involves in reducing the undesired switching of combinational circuits in order to save dynamic power. The proposed methodology can be seamlessly integrated to existing physical design flow to reduce the glitch power which is one of the major contributing factors for both dynamic and IR drop. A glitch is an undesired transition that occurs before intended value in digital circuits. A glitch occurs in CMOS circuits when differential delay at the inputs of a gate is greater than inertial delay, which results into notable amount of power consumption. The glitch power is becoming more prominent in lower technology nodes. Introduction of buffers at the input of the Logic gate may reduce glitches, but it results into large area overhead and
