Systems with elaborate multiple clock distributions are a necessity, and the authors address the postfabrication debug of such multiclock systems. Solutions, based on the authors' communication-centric debug approach, are presented that achieve a consistent snapshot of the system state and force the erroneous state in the face of nondeterminism.
