Intel has been involved with a number of asynchronous logic companies. They bought Fulcrum, which has a number of chips, including Ethernet switches, that use asynchronous logic inside. And they partner with Achronix, which makes FPGAs that utilize asynchronous techniques for internal data pipelining. 

You would almost think that Intel was up to something!

@tb100: "You would almost think that Intel was up to something!"

Very impressive!! You really manage to stay on top of things!!

But I would add one more deal: Intel funded Silistix, a Manchester Unversity start-up leaded by Steve Furber (one of the original ARM architects) and which focused in the development of an asynchronous On-Chip core interconnect.

You can find more info in the next Silistix Limited website -- where references to Intel has been convenently suppressed, of course ;-)

I'm curious what tools all you "I love asynchronous logic" guys are using to implement and verify your designs.

@AZskibum: "I'm curious what tools all you "I love asynchronous logic" guys are using to implement and verify your designs."

Well, last week I used standard VHDL in order to describe a 4000 stages-depth asynchronous micropipeline in the Xilinx Zynq device that powers my Zedboard. No strange circuitry, tools.... just PlanAhead+Xise+plain HDL description.


P.S.: Sorry for my late reply, I missed this post!!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
