In this paper, we describe Skewed Static Logic (S2L) with topology-dependent dual Vt which exhibits energy-efficient operation. S2L consumes less dynamic and static power compared to Monotonic Static (MS) CMOS. Speed degradation of S2L can be offset by the accelerator. We have designed NAND-NOR gate chains using 0.18 μm CMOS technology and verified that S2L reduces energy×delay over MS CMOS by 27-50%. Synthesis algorithm for S2L is developed and the experimental results show S2L consumes 23% less power than MS CMOS with minor increase in delay.
