This thesis describes a novel approach for distributing low skew clock signals across large digital systems independent of environmental and process variations. The technique is integrated into a multi-output clock buffer circuit that can handle a scalable number of clock loads in a point-to-point configuration. The circuit contains an impedance-locked loop… (More)
A self-terminated line driver suitable for fast Ethernet operates in class AB mode and combines digital signal processing with low-power analog circuits. It dissipates 108mW, 48% less than an existing state-of-the-art design. It occupies 0.22mm<sup>2</sup> in a 65nm standard CMOS technology and operates from a 2.5V supply.
