Metastable Response In 5-V Logic Circuits

This document describes metastable response in digital circuits. After a definition of a metastable state, a test circuit is provided, its responses analyzed, and test results given. Examples show the influence of metastability on the response of asynchronous circuits and measures for improving reliability are assessed.
