Abstract : Various methods for handling the asynchronous interaction of signals are investigated. The basic synchronizer circuit, used in many clocked systems, and the interlock, postulated to mediate control signal interaction in asynchronous systems, are shown to fail under certain realizable conditions. The failure is traced to flip flops used as state indicators in these control circuits. (Modified author abstract)
