Analysis of the Oscillation Problem in Tri-Flops

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Oleg Maevsky, Professor David Kinniment, Professor Alex Yakovlev, Dr Alex Bystrov



A tri-flop can be used to build fast three-way arbiters. It is known that this device may exhibit oscillatory behaviour which is difficult to filter out. Using a small-signal dynamic model, this paper presents new conditions for avoiding oscillations that are more accurate than previously known. Some theoretical and practical limitations of these conditions are outlined.
