Abstract

The present day microprocessors are getting faster and use either Dynamic logic which is self-resetting or Domino logic for Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) based machines. Domino logic is fairly common and uses clocks to reset while self-resetting uses the output of its block to reset itself. In Domino logic, clocks are used extensively.
