A Functional Programming Framework for Latency Insensitive Protocol Validation
Latency insensitive protocols (LIPs) have been proposed as a viable means to connect synchronous IP blocks via long interconnects in a system-on-chip. The reason why one needs to implement LIPs on long interconnects stems from the fact that with increasing clock frequencies, the signal delay on some interconnects exceeds the clock period. Correctness of a system composed of synchronous blocks communicating via LIPs is established by showing latency equivalence between a completely synchronous composition of the blocks, and the LIP based composition. A design flow based on a synchronous composition specification, and stepwise refinement to LIP composition can be easily conceived, and a proof obligation to show latency equivalence between the synchronous specification and the refinement needs to be discharged. In this work, we propose a functional programming based framework for modeling and simulating LIP, and implement the semantics of various refinement steps in the programming model...
