ARM996HS: The First Licensable, Clockless 32-Bit Processor Core
March/April 2007 (vol. 27 no. 2)
pp. 58-68
Arjan Bink, Handshake Solutions
Clockless implementations dramatically improve energy efficiency without requiring more area than conventional synchronous circuit designs. The clockless ARM996HS, developed through the TiDE design flow, consumes about one-third the power of comparable synchronous, clock-gated, ARM cores implementing the same ISA. The ARM996HS also generates low peak currents and produces very low electromagnetic emissions, and it is robust against variations in current, voltage, and temperature.
