Asynchronous Extensions to the STRICT High Level Design System

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Albert Koelmans, Martin McLauchlan, Professor David Kinniment



The basis of the ver increasing complexity of VLSI systems is a reduction in feature sizes which in turn leads to an increase in timing problems due to , among other things, clock skew. This is likely to result, in the coming decade in an upsurge in the use of asynchronous or self timed design styles, whose function is mainly to eliminate these kind of timing problems. The STRICT language and design system are currently being extended to allow accurate modelling and automatic generation of asynchronous designs based upon Petri Nets. We discuss the main issues involved and illustrate these with an example.
