Embedded First-In First-Out (FIFO) memories are increasingly used in many IC designs. We have created a new full-custom embedded ripple-through FIFO module with asynchronous read and write clocks. The implementation is based on a micropipeline architecture and is at least a factor two smaller than SRAM-based and standard-cell-based counterparts. This paper gives an overview of the most important design features of the new FIFO module and describes its test and design-for-test approach.
