Title: Design and implementation of an asynchronous version of the MIPS R3000 microprocessor
Author: Johnson, Kevin
Abstract: The purpose of this thesis is to show some of the advantages for the asynchronous implementation of a major synchronous structure. Three people were involved with the design of an asynchronous microprocessor modeled after the MIPS R3000 microprocessor. This microprocessor implemented all of the MIPS reduced instruction set, while eliminating the need for synchronous clocking throughout the chip. Paul Fanelli modeled the asynchronous processor using VHDL (hardware description language). Kevin Johnson created circuit level designs and layouts of the arithmetic logic unit and supporting hardware. Scott Siers created circuit level designs and layouts of the instruction fetch, write back, memory and instruction decode stages.
