  • Behavioral transformations to increase the noise immunity of asynchronous specifications 

    Taubin, Alexander; Kondratyev, Alex; Cortadella, Jordi; Lavagno, Luciano (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 1999)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Noise immunity is becoming one of the most important design parameters for deep-sub-micron (DSM) technologies. Asynchronous circuits seem to be a good candidate to alleviate the problems originated by simultaneous switching ...
  • Elastic circuits 

    Carmona Vargas, Josep; Cortadella, Jordi; Kishinevsky, Michael; Taubin, Alexander (2009-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    Elasticity in circuits and systems provides tolerance to variations in computation and communication delays. This paper presents a comprehensive overview of elastic circuits for those designers who are mainly familiar with ...
  • Identifying state coding conflicts in asynchronous system specifications using Petri net unfoldings 

    Kondratyev, Alex; Cortadella, Jordi; Kishinevsky, Michael; Lavagno, Luciano; Taubin, Alexander; Yakovlev, Alex (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 1998)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    State coding conflict detection is a fundamental part of synthesis of asynchronous concurrent systems from their specifications as signal transition graphs (STGs), which are a special kind of labelled Petri nets. The paper ...
  • Lazy transition systems and asynchronous circuits synthesis with relative timing assumptions 

    Cortadella, Jordi; Kishinevsky, Michael; Burns, Steven M.; Kondratyev, Alex; Lavagno, Luciano; Stevens, Kenneth S.; Taubin, Alexander; Yakovlev, Alex (2002-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents a design flow for timed asynchronous circuits. It introduces lazy transitions systems as a new computational model to represent the timing information required for synthesis. The notion of laziness ...
  • Lazy transition systems: application to timing optimization of asynchronous circuits 

    Cortadella, Jordi; Kishinevsky, Michael; Kondratyev, Alex; Lavagno, Luciano; Taubin, Alexander; Yakovlev, Alex (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 1998)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The paper introduces Lazy Transitions Systems (LzTSs). The notion of laziness explicitly distinguishes between the enabling and the firing of an event in a transition system. LzTSs can be effectively used to model the ...
