<p>Editors' note:</p><p>The high-performance benefits of asynchronous design have hitherto been obtained only using full-custom design. This article presents an industrial-strength asynchronous ASIC CAD flow that enables the automatic synthesis and physical design of high-level specifications into GHz silicon, greatly reducing design time and enabling far wider use of asynchronous technology.</p><p align="right">—Montek Singh (UNC Chapel Hill) and Luciano Lavagno (Politecnico di Torino)</p>
