Based on the new concept of crosstalk immunity set (CIS), procedures to minimize capacitive cross-coupling effects are developed for domino logic circuit. The nets in a crosstalk immunity set are free from crosstalk effects for any combination of input vectors. New algorithms for CIS identification and minimization are proposed to maximize the chance of crosstalk minimization in routing step. Our routing algorithm augmented with CIS information searches for optimal solution to minimize maximum crosstalk the circuit would experience. Experimental results show that the reduction of maximum crosstalk is up to 30% with CIS-augmented routing.
