Source-series-terminated (SST) transmitters consume ¼ the output stage power of CML drivers [1], but their adoption in industry-standard multi-protocol SerDes has been stunted by difficulties in achieving flexible swings, constant current equalization, and supporting DC-coupled voltage standards drafted with CML in mind. Fundamentally, CML drivers separate(More)
A dynamic rate adjustable interface is designed a 40-nm LP CMOS process. On-the-fly dynamic rate change is enabled by an all-digital frequency multiplier that detects a reference frequency change, and accordingly provides 4× multiplied clock without any idle time. The clock multiplier, along with matched source synchronous clocking and clock(More)
Power-efficiency results from several generations of I/O interfaces with specific goals are presented as well as the tradeoffs made within and across those designs. Foundational work in active-power reduction at a single rate for a symmetric system, the subsequent application of that work to a burst-mode asymmetric interface, and recent research on(More)
