Buffer manipulation reduces dynamic power by minimizing switching times.
In design with low-power intent, synthesis tools automatically perform a variety of power optimization techniques, including transition rate buffering.
In transition rate buffering, buffer manipulation reduces dynamic power by minimizing switching times.
On a sample of designs, transition rate buffering reduced dynamic power by less than 5%. It had no significant impact on any other aspects of the design flow.
