  abstract= "IC2IC links introduce blocking functionality to a low
     latency high performance data link between independent
     processors. The blocking functionality was achieved with the
     so-called alternating bit protocol. Furthermore, the
     protocol hardens the link against message loss and message
     duplication. This paper provides a detailed discussion of
     the link signals and the protocol layer. The practical part
     shows an example implementation of the IC2IC serial link.
     This example implementation establishes an IC2IC link
     between two configurable hardware devices. Each device
     incorporates a process network which implements the IC2IC
     transceiver functionality. This example implementation
     helped us to explore the practical properties of the IC2IC
     serial interconnect. First, we verified the
     blocking capability of the link and second we analysed
     different reset conditions, such as disconnect and
