In today's SoC design, most of IPs which use the different clock frequency from that of the bus require asynchronous FIFOs. However, in many cases, asynchronous FIFO is designed improperly and the cost of the wrong design is high. In this paper, a register-based asynchronous FIFO is designed to transfer data in asynchronous clock domains by using a valid bits scheme that eliminates the problem of the metastability and synchronization altogether. This FIFO architecture is described in HDL and synthesized to the gate level to compare with other FIFO scheme.
