thesis topic

Hi,
Good topic ram, but implementation will be difficult since there are not available synthesis tools for asynchronous design.

i think there are university level free tools with which you can do the synthesis.

I agree that commercial tools are not there.

Re: thesis topic

Hi,

Yes it makes a good topic for the thesis. Also you can add the (estimated) leakage power of the processor (should not be more :) ).

If your university has a tie-up with an EDA company, you may get access to student licenses, else You will get some of them on the internet.

Cheers!!
