Title: Time-division multiplexing data bus

Abstract

A two-to-one multiplexor comprises a first data input configured to hold data provided from a first preceding asynchronous pipeline stage and a second data input configured to hold data provided from a second preceding asynchronous pipeline stage, a 4-phase bundled data protocol facilitating communication between the first and the second data inputs and the first and second preceding asynchronous pipeline stage, an arbitration unit connected to the first data input and the second data input, and configured to select which of the data from the first and the second data inputs is released, a request release unit, and a reset unit wherein the arbitration unit, the request release unit, and the reset unit implement and complete a second 4-phase bundled data protocol facilitating communication with a succeeding asynchronous pipeline stage for transmission of the data chosen by the arbitration unit thereby providing asynchronous multiplexing of the data.
