    Im working on a final project for a digital design course and I have a
    question regarding how to find the sizes of different logical gates in
    order to minimize the delay across the circuit (effectively the
    critical path). I have a picture of the path if i get your email, if
    not here is a sketch of it.

    cin (2*cunit) -> 2 input OR -> 2 input AND -> 2 input OR -> 2 input
    AND -> 2 input OR -> 2 input AND -> 2 input OR -> 2 input XOR -> 16

    cunit is a parameter we use in class. cunit = capacitance of an

    This is the path and the question is how to size all this stuff such
    that the delay is minimized. Any help would be appreciated as the
    project is due Wednesday night!

    Thank you.

    I suggest you re-read the course material before Wednesday night ;-)
