The promise of chip-wide asynchronous operation is its potential for very low power consumption. This potential is demonstrated by an error-corrector based on digital compact cassette (DCC) specifications, dissipating 80% less than its synchronous counterpart. A reduction in power consumption means longer battery lifetime, important in portable products such as cellular radio and personal audio.
