Systems, pipeline stages, and computer readable media have been developed for advanced asynchronous pipeline circuits. Asynchronous designs offer several potential benefits that make them a promising alternative to synchronous designs, mitigating the challenges of global clock distribution in large complex high-speed systems.
Advantages:
•  Lower power consumption
•  Higher performance
•  Greater robustness
•  Significantly better modularity
