Asynchronous DSPs: Low power, high performance

Keywords:DSP  asynchronous logic  core  EDA tools 

Asynchronous design has been avoided in the past for many reasons, the most important being the lack of a standardized tool flow. To deliver devices quickly, IC design teams use high-level programming languages in combination with EDA tools that speed tasks such as logic design. If such tools were available for asynchronous design, there would be more devices with asynchronous logic components.

This article makes the case for a general-purpose digital signal processor (DSP) core based entirely on asynchronous logic. It reveals many benefits, both for the IC designer and the end user.
