Abstract

Asynchronous communication mechanisms (ACMs) are potentially useful in systems with heterogeneous timing as data connectors between processes belonging to different timing domains. In distributed, concurrent and embedded digital systems, there is often a desire to have some temporal decoupling between different parts of a system. ACMs provide a means with which concurrent processes can communicate with one another and yet still avoid synchronization. This paper describes efforts to implement MATLAB-based models of existing ACM algorithms. These techniques will facilitate the inclusion of ACMs in such application fields as distributed control and signal processing systems.
