In this paper we propose a novel approach to the synthesis of minimal-sized lattices, based on the decomposition of logic functions. Since the decomposition allows to obtain circuits with a smaller area, our idea is to decompose Boolean functions with separate lattices, according to the P-circuits decomposition scheme, and then to implement the decomposed blocks with physically separated regions in a single lattice. Experimental results show that about 35% of the considered benchmarks achieve a smaller area when implemented using the proposed decomposition for switching lattices, with an average gain of at least 24%.
