Timing Measurements of Synchronization Circuits

  title={Timing Measurements of Synchronization Circuits},
  author={Yaron Semiat and Ran Ginosar},
A regular (two-flop) synchronizer and six multisynchronous synchronizers are implemented on a programmable logic device and are measured. An experiment system and method for measuring synchronizers and metastable flip-flops are described. Two separate settling time constants are shown for a metastable flop, confirming earlier results of Dike and Burton [1]. Clocking cross-talk between asynchronous clocks is demonstrated. The regular synchronizer is useful for communications between asynchronous… CONTINUE READING
