Welcome, this blog exists to document my efforts to learn about asynchronous logic design, and to help others do the same. I’ll be making theory, design, and implementation posts as I go, but if you have questions or suggestions, I’d love to hear them.
I am a computer Engineering Student at Iowa State University. I intend to pursue a PhD after graduation. During the school year, I TA the Embedded Systems I course at Iowa State. After taking the Digital Logic course, I have had the idea for this project in some form or another for a while. After a guided design of a synchronous MIPS microprocessor, I feel ready to take on an asynchronous one.
I expect the hazards to be much harder to deal with, especially access to the register file. Regardless, I will learn things and be a better engineer for it.
