SCOPE OF THE SYMPOSIUM

A major goal of the symposium is to identify application domains where asynchronous circuit techniques are of practical interest and to articulate, quantify, and demonstrate their potential advantages (such as high performance, low power, low EM radiation, and high reliability). Special emphasis is given to industrial applications, functional ICs, and mature CAD tools. Furthermore, attention is paid to technical innovations that may help improve the cost, quality, performance, or testability of the final product.
