This paper reports on the design of a test chip built to test a) a new latency insensitive network fabric protocol and circuits, b) a new synchronizer design, and c) how efficiently one can synchronize into a clocked domain when elastic interfaces are utilized. Simulations show that the latency insensitive network allows excellent characterization of network performance in terms of the cost of routing, amount of blocking due to congestion, and message buffering. The network routers show that… CONTINUE READING
