Today's networks of processors on and off chip, operatingwith independent clocks, need effective synchronization of the datapassing between them for reliability. When two or more processorsrequest access to a common resource, such as a memory, an arbiterhas to decide which request to deal with first. Currentdevelopments in integrated circuit processing are leading to anincrease in the numbers of independent digital processing elementsin a single system. With this comes faster communications, morenetworks on chip, and the demand for more reliable, more complex,and higher performance synchronizers and arbiters. Written by oneof the foremost researchers in this area of digital design, thisauthoritative text provides in-depth theory and practical designsolutions for the reliable working of synchronization andarbitration hardware in digital systems.
The book provides methods for making real reliabilitymeasurements both on and off chip, evaluating some of the commondifficulties and detailing circuit solutions at both circuit andsystem levels. Synchronization and Arbitration in DigitalSystems also presents:
* mathematical models used to estimate mean time between failuresin digital systems;
* a summary of serial and parallel communication techniques foron-chip data transmission;
* explanations on how to design a wrapper for a locallysynchronous cell, highlighting the issues associated with stoppableclocks;
* an examination of various types of priority arbiters, usingsignal transition graphs to show the specification of differentdesigns (from the simplest to more complex multi-way arbiters)including ways of solving problems encountered in a wide range ofapplications;
* essential information on systems composed of independentlytimed regions, including a discussion on the problem of choice andthe factors affecting the time taken to make choices inelectronics.
With its logical approach to design methodology, this will provean invaluable guide for electronic and computer engineers andresearchers working on the design of digital electronic hardware.Postgraduates and senior undergraduate students studying digitalsystems design as part of their electronic engineering course willstruggle to find a resource that better details the informationgiven inside this book

David Kinniment is Professor Emeritus at the University of Newcastle, having been Professor of Electronics in the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering from 1979 until 1998. He currently works part time, mainly on asynchronous design and design methodology, in the Computer Science Department. He is very experienced in the measurement and characterization of synchronization and arbitration in digital systems, having been one of the leading researchers in the world in this area of digital design since the 1970s. He wrote the first paper to describe the measurement of mean time between failures (in other words, realiability) for a metastable device in 1972 and this year (2006) he won the best paper award at the ASYNC 2006 conference. Along with this, he has written a number of published journal articles on the topic, and has also collaborated with industry (most recently INTEL) to develop efficient digital hardware design methods, and ways of ensuring reliability in digital processors. - Newsletter
