Create low power, higher performance circuits with shorter design times using this practical guide to asynchronous design. This practical alternative to conventional synchronous design enables performance close to full-custom designs with design times that approach commercially available ASIC standard cell flows. It includes design trade-offs, specific design examples, and end-of-chapter exercises. Emphasis throughout is placed on practical techniques and real-world applications, making this ideal for circuit design students interested in alternative design styles and system-on-chip circuits, as well as circuit designers in industry who need new solutions to old problems.

• Demontrates how to implement an asynchronous circuit simulator using commercial software so you can develop your own simulator, or download a free add-on to simulate your own designs • Shows you how to achieve high performance and cut design time • Includes design trade-offs, specific design examples, and end-of-chapter exercises
