This paper demonstrates how to rapidly build useful, and high performance self-timed or elastic communication networks. The networks are elegantly extensible to include an arbitrary number of Producers and Consumers. Each switch within the network is built from multiple instances of a Latch Control Element (LaCkEy). The Lackey is a general circuit for self… CONTINUE READING
