The expectations on circuits are rising with their number of applications, and technologies alternative to CMOS are becoming more important day by day. A promising alternative is reversible computation, a computing paradigm with applications in quantum computation, adiabatic circuits, program inversion, etc. An elaborated design flow is not available to reversible circuit design yet. In this work, two directions are considered: Exploiting the conventional design flow and developing a new flow according to the properties of reversible circuits. Which direction should be taken is not obvious, so we discuss the possible assets and drawbacks of taking either direction. We present ideas which can be exploited and outline open challenges which still have to be addressed. Preliminary results obtained by initial implementations illustrate the way to go. By this we present and discuss two promising and complementary directions for the scalable design and synthesis of reversible circuits.
