Simulating the Behavior of Synchronizers

J. Cox, T. Chaney, D. Zar 13 Feb 2011 By simulating the behavior of a synchronizer, an estimate of its Mean-Time-Between-Failures (MTBF) can be obtained. The method for estimating MTBF described here was originally based on the work of Molnar and Rosenberger [1], work...

Transistor Variability and Synchronizer Failures

Jerry Cox, ScD Two new tools, MetaACE and PublicSync, have been recently introduced by Blendics. Together they are capable of the analysis of many aspects of synchronizer performance. The benchmark circuit, PublicSync, can be simulated by the analysis tool, MetaACE,...
