The most promising scheme for high-speed low power communication over long on-chip interconnects is Current-mode signaling (CMS) with dynamic overdriving scheme. A variation tolerant dynamic overdriving CMS scheme is proposed. The proposed CMS scheme employs a smart bias circuit in transmitter side. The smart bias is energy efficient and it reduces the(More)
This paper presents a current-mode signalling scheme for bidirectional long on-chip interconnects. The transceiver has been fabricated in 180nm CMOS process. Features of the proposed scheme are driver pre-emphasis and low impedance termination. While no extra repeater is needed for line lengths up to 8mm long the scheme improves the delay by 34% for 2mm-8mm(More)
