This paper describes a method for pipelining of register-to-register netlists. We define algorithms for inserting latches in a data path, both inside each unit and between the units as well as between control logic and the data path and for readjusting the state transition table. Experimental results on several benchmarks show 30%-40% improvement in performance.
