The most recent approaches proposed for high-speed dynamic pipelines are applicable only to linear datapaths. However, real systems are dynamical in their datapaths, i.e. stages may have multiple inputs ("joins") or multiple outputs ("forks"). This paper presents several new pipeline templates that extend existing high-speed approaches for linear dynamic logic pipelines, by providing efficient control structures that can accommodate forks and joins. In addition, constructs for conditional
