<p>Editors' note:</p><p>This article presents a case study of a fast and energy-efficient hardware implementation of a stack. The design is highly scalable, as its cycle time remains unchanged and energy per operation grows very slowly, with an increase in the number of storage locations. This design example demonstrates two often-claimed benefits of asynchronous circuit design: the potential for high average-case performance and low power consumption.</p><p align="right">&#x2014;Montek Singh (UNC Chapel Hill) and Luciano Lavagno (Politecnico di Torino)</p>
