High performance asynchronous arithmetic operator design techniques are proposed, which adopt some of the techniques commonly used in synchronous systems such as fast precharged logic and efficient latch design, while maintaining the features of localized and elastic pipelining control inherent in asynchronous design. A pipelined sixteen bit multiplier designed using these techniques is presented and its performance compared with several previously reported asynchronous and synchronous designs.
