Title Synthesis of timed asynchronous circuits
Date 1993
Description Abstract-In this paper we present a systematic procedure to synthesize timed asynchronous circuits using timing constraints dictated by system integration, thereby facilitating natural interaction between synchronous and asynchronous circuits. In addition, our timed circuits also tend to be more & dent, in both speed and area, compared with traditional asynchronous circuits. Our synthesis procedure begins with a cyclic graph specification to which timing constraints can be added. First, the cyclic graph is unfolded into an in6nite acyclic graph. Then, an analysis of two finite subgraphs of the in6nite acyclic graph detects and removes redundancy in the original specification based on the given timing constraints. From this reduced specification, an implementation that is guaranteed to function correctly under the timing constraints is systematically synthesized. With practical circuit examples, we demonstrate that the resulting timed implementation is significantly reduced in complexity compared with implementations previously derived using other methodologies.
