Jean Marie Munier, Andre Pauporte, Clement Poiraud: Elastic configurable buffer for buffering asynchronous data. International Business Machines Corporation, Joscelyn G Cockburn, November 28, 1995: US05471581 (12 worldwide citation)

An elastic buffer is provided between two busses working with independent clocking. The buffer is implemented by a piece of RAM memory (37) partitioned into sectors (41), each of which contains successive memory addresses. Each sector (41), can be alternatively written and read, so that at a given m ...
