A systematic investigation into concurrency reduction of untimed asynchronous 4-phase latch controllers is reported. Starting with a state graph that exhibits maximal concurrency, rules are provided for systematically reducing its states and thereby curtailing its behaviors. The rules predict liveness and occupancy, as well as the regularity and behavior of their pipelines. The rules also reveal the precise extent of the design space and thus provide a secure platform on which to study the… CONTINUE READING
