Summary: 
In this paper, we propose an effective asynchronous datapath synthesis system to optimize statistical performance of asynchronous systems. The proposed algorithm is a heuristic method which simultaneously performs scheduling and resource binding. During the design process, decisions will be made based on the statistical schedule length analysis. It is demonstrated that asynchronous datapaths with the reduced mean total computation time are successfully synthesized for some datapath synthesis benchmarks.
