This paper analyzes the issues that face digital circuit design methodologies and tools which address energy-efficient digital circuit sizing. The best known techniques for resolving these issues are presented, along with the sources of error. The analysis demonstrates that input slope independent models for energy and delay and stage based optimization are effective for analyzing and optimizing energy-efficient digital circuits when applied correctly.
