We present a new style of long-distance, on-chip interconnect based loosely on the asynchronous GasP architecture, with a number of advantages over conventional interconnect. Most signi cant are a low wire count, a low area requirement, the absence of a global clock and simple composition with existing designs. We give some sample throughput and latency gures from simulation on a 0.18 m technology, and show that it is viable for use with modern interconnect requirements, is of low complexity, and has a lower area requirement than parallel interconnect over distances as short as 1mm.
