With the evolution of microelectronics, more and more high-complexity digital systems are been designed. Once the global clock signal is a main concern for synchronous systems design, asynchronous circuits seem to be an interesting alternative, once they don't present clock skew and clock distribution problems. However, the lack of tools for automatic(More)
Today, the design of complex synchronous digital systems shows serious difficulties relating to the global clock and to Deep-Sub-Micron MOS technology. The asynchronous design is an interesting alternative to solve these difficulties, once they do not present clock skew or distribution problems. However, the lack of tools for automatic synthesis is still a(More)
Contemporary digital systems must necessarily be based on the “System-on-Chip – SoC” concept. An interesting style for SoC design is GALS (Globally Asynchronous, Locally Synchronous) paradigm. Currently, the major drawback in the design of a GALS system shows to be the asynchronous interface (asynchronous wrapper – AW), especially when the GALS system is(More)
