This paper presents a method for designing a special type of asynchronous circuits, called Gasp circuits, and illustrates the method by a novel design of a low-latency, high-throughput FIFO, called a Square FIFO. The design method includes a graphical notation that permits the specification not only of circuit topology but also of the time separation(More)
One of the most frequently used primitives in asyn-chronous control circuits is the C-element. The three most popular CMOS implementations of the C-element are compared with respect to energy-eciency, delay, and area, with an emphasis on energy. The three implementations have been introduced by Sutherland, Mar-tin, and Van Berkel. We show that in a typical(More)
Proximity Communication (PxIO) is an interchip communication technology that offers important advantages over conventional chip-to-chip I/O, including high channel density and low power. Proximity Communication places chips face-to-face, within a few microns of one another [1]. Capacitive coupling between top-level metal I/O structures permits efficient(More)
