Simulating Asynchronous Architectures on Transputer Networks

G. Theodoropoulos, J.V. Woods


Recently, there has been a resurgence of interest in asynchronous design techniques due to the potential of asynchronous logic for higher performance, power efficiency and immunity from clock-related timing problems. Occam, a CSP-based parallel language provides for the rapid development of asynchronous architectural simulation models which may then be executed on a transputer network to achieve high performance. This paper discusses issues related to the design and execution of such models.
