In this paper, two problems on domino logic synthesis are addressed. A mapping method that maps the complementary logic cones independently when AND/OR logic is to be implemented, and together using dual-monotonic gates in the case of XOR/XNOR logic, is proposed. The results show up to 28.9% improvement in area and always show the same or better performance in delay over existing approaches. Then, a 0-1 integer programming formulation is provided for the output phase assignment problem for domino logic. It considers the cost difference between two polarities and enables a standard linear programming package to be used to solve the problem. The results show up to 41.0% improvement in area.
