Anomalous Behaviour of Logical Circuits and the Arbitration Problem
The evolution of computer architecture styles and the constant growth of systems performance require an adequate updating of all design solution and approaches related to the problems of sharing common resources in a system, and timing of interactions between system components. The first references to the difficulties that arise in solving these problems at the hardware level were noticed in the mid-sixties. Such difficulties can be illustrated by processes in a synchronous device whose input receives an asynchronous signal, as shown in Fig. 9.1.
