A High-Speed Clockless Serial Link Transceiver

  title={A High-Speed Clockless Serial Link Transceiver},
  author={John Teifel and Rajit Manohar},
We present a high-speed, clockless, serial link transceiver for inter-chip communication in asynchronous VLSI systems. Serial link transceivers achieve high offchip data rates by using multiplexing transmitters and demultiplexing receivers that interface parallel on-chip data paths with high-speed, serial off-chip buses. While synchronous transceivers commonly use multi-phase clocks to control the data multiplexing and demultiplexing, our clockless transceiver uses a token-ring architecture… CONTINUE READING
