A sampling circuit automatically resamples the data from another timing domain until the sampled data is represented correctly in the new domain by assuring that no metastable states exist. If a metastable state exists, a sampling signal recirculates through the sampling circuit until the metastable state no longer exists. A comparison of input data to sampled data is used to determine the existence of a metastable state.
