<p>The author based asynchronous circuit realizations of symmetric crossbar arbiters on the paradigm of intercepting moving wavefronts in a two-dimensional micropipeline-like structure. The LockC component, a hybrid of a Muller C element and a Q flop, supports both the movement of wavefronts in the array and the ability to intercept wavefronts asynchronously. These arbiters may find use in multiprocessor routing networks whose characteristics better match the capabilities of asynchronous circuits.</p>
