This paper proposes an algorithm to synthesize combinational circuits based on spin diode logic technology. Spin diode is a magnetoresistive semiconductor heterojunction device which allows for a binary current based logic. The proposed algorithm takes the advantages of the functional composition (FC) approach to obtain fanout free network implementations with the minimum number of spin diodes. Experimental results have shown that the new proposal obtains better results when compared to the state-of-the-art algorithms that focus on traditional CMOS technology adapted to this new approach.
