Full text is not currently available for this publication.


An asynchronous circuit and methods for requesting that an action is triggered. The circuit performs the following steps: 1) receive a plurality of input signals, the input signals each having a first transition between states at a different time, 2) select one of the input signals based on the time of its first transition compared to the time of the first transition of the other input signals, 3) provide a request to an action block to: i) trigger the action in response to receiving the request, and ii) to provide an acknowledgement upon completion of the action, wherein the request and the action are dependent on the input signal that was selected, 4) receive the acknowledgement from the action block, and 5) initiate steps 1) to 4) for a second transition of the input signals after the plurality of input signals have undergone their first transitions.
