pp. 802-804

E. G. Wormald's note1proposes a way to prevent metastable action in synchronizers. Experimental results from testing his suggested circuits show that his solution does not work. A reference to a general proof that synchronizers must have a region of metastable action is given.
Index Terms:
synchronizer failure, Arbiter, asynchronous interactions, flip-flop metastability, glitch, interrupt failure
