We show that synchronizers that operate under Dynamic Voltage Frequency Scaling exhibit exponential failure rate variations due to the disproportionate scaling of propagation delay and the parameter τ. Therefore, the optimum number of synchronization cycles for a design can vary dynamically depending on its voltage/frequency operating point. To address this problem, we present an adaptive clock domain interface that optimizes synchronization latency by evaluating flip-flop synchronization performance dynamically. The proposed design meets a reliability criterion without relying on excessively-conservative synchronizers to accommodate for worst-case performance.
