DAC network and the equalizer network to resolve setup and A 24Gb/s transmitter with a digital linear equalizer is hold time violations. Equalizer clock distribution is in the implemented in 90nm CMOS technology. It supports 4-form of a mesh. The clock to the pattern-generator block channel Analog Multi-Tone (AMT) transmission, where each branches off from(More)
The backplane environment presents a serious challenge to sig-naling rates above 5Gb/s. Previous 10Gb/s transceivers [1] are not designed for this harsh environment. In the raw single bit response of Fig. 4.6.1, a single 200ps pulse undergoes serious loss and dispersion and initiates reflections that may be a significant percentage of an equalized eye.(More)
The two dominant methods of reducing SRAM power have been to reduce operating range and to limit signal swings on the high-capacitance bit and I/O lines [1]. As a consequence, decode and write now consume a significant fraction of SRAM power. Dual-Vt CMOS circuit techniques implement reduced-swing decode and write [1]. Swings on high-capacitance predecode(More)
— MIPS-X is a 32-bit RISC microprocessor implemented in a conservative 2-p m, two-level-metal, n-well CMOS technology. High performance is achieved by using a nonoverlapping two-phase 20-MHz clock and executing one instruction every cycle. To reduce its memory band-width requirements, MIPS-X includes a 2-kbyte on-chip instruction cache. This cache satisfies(More)
