TELS and MALS are threshold and majority/minority logic synthesis tools that were developed by Rui Zhang and Pallav Gupta under the supervision of Prof. Niraj K. Jha of Princeton University. Dr. Lin Zhong, of Rice University, was also a contributor.
Both of these tools have been integrated into SIS which is a Boolean logic synthesis and optimization tool for UC Berkeley.
