We describe an asynchronous control circuit for interchip communication that enables high throughput proximity communication. The circuit has been fabricated in TSMC 180nm technology and operates over a wide range of coupling capacitances between the chips and over a wide range of supply voltages. At the nominal voltage of 1.8 V and a coupling capacitance of 40fF, this control circuit enables a throughput of 3 Giga token items per second for the data path
