7.3 An Innovative Multiple-valued Asynchronous Approach to System Design ",F.Pessolano , R. Mariani and R. Saletti - School of CISM - CCSV South Bank University 103 Borough Road, London SE1 0AA, UK

Abstract: In this paper the Event-oriented Logic, an innovative approach to system design, is presented. It is proposed for the first time to give to both signal levels and signal transitions a logical meaning, so that the information content per wire is increased as in multiple-valued logic. The new technique is applied to asynchronous systems and possible handshake models have been studied. One of these models is described and simulated in comparison to an asynchronous four-phase micropipeline approach. The comparison demonstrates the feasibility of Event-oriented logic with at least the same performance of standard approaches and reduced interconnections overhead.
