Testable MUTEX Design
IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I: Regular Papers, pp. 1188-1199, 2016.
The mutual exclusion element is a fundamental component of asynchronous arbiters. Despite their importance, however, the testability of these components is typically limited to functional testing. This paper discusses why this is not sufficient and investigates three MUTEX implementations, two of which are completely new, that support the...More
