Abstract : Parts-R-Us is a chip that contains a collection of building block parts for asynchronous circuit design. The parts contained on the chip are either not available as standard commercial components, or are standard gates combined into small modules that are particularly useful for building asynchronous control circuits. There are eight different configurations of Parts-R-Us, each offering a different set of asynchronous parts to the user. The parts contained on the chip include: C-elements, transition call modules, transition selectors, transition toggles, transition arbiters, a four phase mutual exclusion element, an asynchronous register, two phase Q-registers, and four phase Q-registers. This document is both a description of Parts-R-Us, and a user's manual for designers using the chip.
