Design of Asynchronous Circuits: From Fundamental Principles to Advanced Techniques

31 July - 02 August 2018 at Dialog Semiconductor, Campbell, USA

At this course we will start from the theory and fundamental principles of asynchronous circuit design. Then we will proceed to the advanced techniques for technology mapping, and verification and synthesis of hierarchical designs. Practical session will teach the engineer how to use the Workcraft toolset to synthesise and verify asynchronous circuits, such as buck controller and VME bus controller.
