Title: A Practical Approach To Asynchronous Gate Networks
Authors: J.A. Brzozowski* and M. Yoeli
Abstract: In many works, the analysis and synthesis of asynchronous gate networks is based on a model in which state variables are associated with feedback loops. This paper shows that such a model is incapable of properly representing race conditions and, consequently, may yield misleading results. A model· in which a state variable is associated with each gate is described here, and is applied to the analysis of complex flip-flops.
