Tools For Validating Asynchronous Digital Circuits

Aaron Ashkinazy, Doug Edwards, Craig Farnsworth, Gary Gendel, Shiv Sikand


Asynchronous design methodologies can yield designs that are smaller, and/or consume less power, than their synchronous counterparts. Traditional tools, oriented toward synchronous designs, may miss critical asynchronous design problems. This paper describes the modeling methodology and hazard analysis of the SIMIC logic simulator that address asynchronous designs. It also describes XPOWER, an analysis and visualization tool for dynamic power consumption.
