  • Patent number: 9189445
    Abstract: A method and a device for synchronizing broadcast of streaming data by a transmitting data processing unit to a plurality of receiving data processing units is provided. After a data word has been sent, a synchronizer in the transmitting data processing unit collects an acknowledge signal from each of the receiving data processing units and then generates an indication that the next data word can be transmitted. This allows to speed-up data delivery to parallel working processing units in a system-on-a-chip since data delivery has no longer to account for a maximum predictable latency of the respective receiving units.
