Pin multiplexing is a common practice applied in order to save large number of pads in an SoC. This reduces the Die area of the chip but impose a number of limitations, like requirement of dedicated, complex pin muxing circuit. Traditionally there are three major types of pin multiplexing circuits which are in use; arbiter based , resgister configurable and priority muxing . Out of these , priority muxing simplifies the muxing strategy as it muxes the various functions together on the basis of timing criticality , also it utilizes the IP’s in built select signal . In this paper we propose a novel MUX cell design which can be applied at the places where priority muxing is used. This muxing strategy enables muxing of functions with equal timing criticality together at one single pad even with the priority intact. Which in turn limits the number of high driving pads in SoCs hence saving power and area both? The proposed circuitry is technology independent and also saves area . This circuit is applied in a SoC at 90nm technology by replacing traditional priority based pin muxing and almost 72% area saving and significant interface frequency increase is achieved
