Dynamic logic is much susceptible to noise, specially in ultra deep submicron technology. The keeper transistor has to be carefully sized to maintain noise margin without much speed penalty. In this paper, we analyze the keeper transistor sizing with respect to the size of NMOS transistors in the evaluation tree. Based on the analytical results, we propose a keeper transistor sizing method. HSPICE simulation results show that the proposed keeper transistor sizing method can be broadly applied to all domino logic gates.
