This article describes a circuit configuration that has all of the advantages of a CMOS-DOMINO circuit family, yet it assures consistent precharge and is "glitch-free". The structure to be used as a CMOS-DOMINO logic block has all of the advantages of CMOS-DOMINO logic as described in [*]. The function of this logic complies with all restrictions imposed on CMOS-DOMINO (no inversion possible) and has all the benefits of this logic: CMOS power requirements and speed of dynamic n-MOS logic. However, this logic family is "glitch-free", i.e., functional block f is fully precharged during each precharge period so that during the "evaluation" phase the node F (Fig.
