An asynchronous communication mechanism using self-timed circuits

Abstract

A modified 4-slot asynchronous communication mechanism (ACM) using entirely selftimed circuits to implement the algorithm is presented here. Mutual exclusion elements are used to concentrate potential metastability to a couple of discrete points so that it can be resolved entirely within the mechanism itself, while the self-timed circuits allow the… (More)
