SNAP - The Stanford Sub-nanosecond arithmetic processor is an interdisciplinary effort to develop validated theory, and tools for realizing an arithmeti c processor with execution rates under 1ns. The project has targeted the full spectrum of tradeoffs from algorithms, circuit optimizations, system issues, and development of metrics to characterize processors.
