Robust Interfaces for Mixed-Timing Systems with Application to Latency-Insensitive Protocols

  title={Robust Interfaces for Mixed-Timing Systems with Application to Latency-Insensitive Protocols},
  author={Tiberiu Chelcea and Steven M. Nowick},
This paper presents several low-latency mixed-timing FIFO designs that interface systems on a chip working at different speeds. The connected systems can be either synchronous or asynchronous. The design are then adapted to work between systems with very long interconnection delays, by migrating a single-clock solution by Carloni et al. (for “latency-insensitive” protocols) to mixed-timing domains. The new designs can be made arbitrarily robust with regard to metastability and interface… CONTINUE READING
