A Brief Summary of the ECS Project

The Event Controlled Systems methodology is a asynchronous logic design approach that employs (but is not completely restricted to) a two-phase communications strategy. ECS evolved out of the pioneering work of Professor Douglas Pucknell on two-phase asynchronous logic. Professor Pucknell developed an approach termed Event Driven Logic that is largely superceded by the Event Controlled Systems methodology.

The goals of the ECS project are

The ECS project is currently funded by an ARC grant to investigate it's application to the design of an eight-bit microprocessor. Having completed this task, the asynchronous logic group is investigating new areas of research, including
