† A new compact physics-based Alpha-Power Law MOSFET Model is introduced to enable projections of low power circuit performance for future generations of technology by linking the simple mathematical expressions of the original Alpha-Power Law Model with their physical origins. The new model, verified by HSPICE simulations and measured data, includes: 1) a(More)
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)
