Chapter Ten. Elastic Store Memory


Most designers during their career have designed interfaces between two or more data processing systems that utilized synchronous data streams. The term synchronous, as used in this chapter, refers to the case where the different data streams are synchronous or time aligned to the same system clock. When dealing with synchronous interfaces, the design is usually relatively straightforward.

There are occasions, however, when a designer must interface two or more processing systems or data streams where the data rates are asynchronous to one another. For purposes of this chapter, the term asynchronous refers to ...
