Few studies have explored the complex circuit simulation of stochastic and unary computing systems, which are referred to under the umbrella term of bit-stream processing. The computer simulation of multi-level cascaded circuits with reconvergent paths has not been largely examined in the context of bit-stream processing systems. This study addresses this gap and proposes a contingency table -based reconvergent path-aware simulation method for fast and efficient simulation of multi-level circuits. The proposed method exhibits significantly better runtime and accuracy.
