    Hi everyone,

    Is it possible to build a circuit that is completely asynchronous (or
    with handshakes) without using any clock in the circuit. If yes, then
    is it a better choice than the clocked circuit with clock gating
    inckuded.

    Thank you for your support.

    Regards,

    [smells like homework]

    Go look up "synchronized transistions" and delay-insensitive circuits
    on the web. You might also want to read Sutherland's Turing-award
    paper.

    Depends on what you want to achieve.
