Re: Basic elements?

@MButts: "Not much point in showing a bunch of datapaths (in diagrams that render too small to read) without even briefly explaining the round and arrow-shaped elements that run across the top, and how they relate to the micropipeline you introduced before."

The diagrams are just introduced for provding a flashing idea on how the mcropipelined asynchronous logic designs should be implemented from a geometric point of view. For this purpose, this diagrams are just snapshots taken from a complete Xilinx ISE project, where the real logic behind the weird schematic simbols can be studied.

Note that all of them are implemented in schematic mode, as an extra effort to allow visualizing how the signals are really flowng throughout the system.

For a deeper detail of the inner gears under the hood, you should check too the next preprinted paper on Arxiv:

Efficient implementation of GALS systems over commercial synchronous FPGAs: a new approach

 

MButts: "I just wish there was a little more technique and a fewer examples in your column. Now I'll go take a look at your site. All the best!"

So, after all,  I've managed to reach my target: leading intersted people as you are to the main AsyncArt project. And, of course, we are open for new members!!

You can fnd my email in the website if interested. Don't hesitate in contacting me if you have any question or request ;-)

I've always been interested in asynchronous logic and once did a few FPGA experiments along these lines, so I'm interested in this work. I just wish there was a little more technique and a fewer examples in your column. Now I'll go take a look at your site. All the best!
