The book covers verification of modular asynchronous circuits, alternating-bit protocols, arbiters, pipeline controllers, up-down counters, and phase converters. Using detailed examples, exercises, and tutorials, complete with downloadable toolsets available on the web, the book can serve as a text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in computer science and electrical engineering.
Since traditional latches are level sensitive, however, traditional designs required two-to-four and four-to-two phase converters, which hinder performance[4].
