2012 International Journal of Computer Applications  
The mass application of asynchronous design has been an elusive goal for academic researchers while recent advances are promising. However asynchronous circuit has some inherent advantages over synchronous counterpart. The matrix vector multiplication core of discrete cosine transforms (DCT) is demonstrated in this paper, by non linear pipelined templates. From this proposed DCT applications, Quasi-Delay Insensitive (QDI) templates are introduced to yielding average high performance and low

Our proposed asynchronous design yields 35% higher average throughput and negligible energy overhead compared with conventional synchronous design.
