Arbitrate-and-move primitives for high throughput on-chip interconnection networks


An n-leaf pipelined balanced binary tree is used for arbitration of order and movement of data from n input ports to one output port. A novel arbitrate-and-move primitive circuit for every node of the tree, which is based on a concept of reduced synchrony that benefits from attractive features of both asynchronous and synchronous designs, is presented. The… (More)
