I am new to logic design and trying to design an Asynchronous FIFO. can somebody suggest some good docs to read?
Here goes a suggestion
In reply to grasshopper:
In reply to abhinavpr:
Also if you are interested, there is a famous paper on asynchronous FIFOs.
In reply to glennramalho:
I have gone through that paper too but even there it is not explained.
Plz somebody help me.
FIFO is nothing but a set of registers.Normally used in highthroughput requirement systems.Data read /write when FIFO empty /full creates issues ,so we need to design additional control logic for the same.My suggestion is to understand syncronous FIFO first ,then undestand the problem of metastability and CDC reconvergence ,followed by grey code solution.Plenty of materials are available in the internet.
Im also having a task of desigining Asyn. FIFO.. i have gone through that paper. please explain me about the gray pointer comparision.
