We formally define - at the stream transformer level - a class of synchronous circuits that tolerate any variability in the latency of their environment. We study behavioral properties of networks of such circuits and prove fundamental compositionality results. The paper contributes to bridging the gap between the theory of latency-insensitive systems and the correct implementation of efficient control structures for them.
