A differential AC coupled transceiver for high-speed and low-swing has been implemented in a 0.18μm CMOS process. The proposed architecture includes a pulse receiver and a broadband limiting amplifier to recover a NRZ signal from a 75fF capacitive coupled channel. The system works at 12Gb/s through 10cm FR4 printed circuit board interconnect, while(More)
An at-speed self-testable technique is proposed for the high speed domino adder. We apply pseudo-exhaustive testing so that all testable faults in the 64-bit adder are detected by just 23K patterns. The adder latency is accurately measured by the programmable-skew clock generated from delay-locked loop (DLL). The proposed technique is validated on a 6.4GHz(More)
A novel 64-bit hybrid radix-4 sparse-4 tree adder using clock-delayed (CD) footless domino logic is proposed. The adder operates at 6.4GHz with 181ps latency and it consumes 840mW at 1.2V in a standard 90nm CMOS technology. The adder latency is accurately measured by the programmable clock generated from delay-locked loop (DLL). Pseudo-exhaustive testing is(More)
A 10-bit current-steering digital-to-analog converter (DAC) has been proposed. This study is used for the transmitter (Tx) of the powerline communication (PLC) analog-front-end (AFE), and it reaches the standard of the HomePlug AV2. The proposed DAC also uses a technique as digital random-returnto-zero (DRRZ) [1] to achieve high performance in the OFDM(More)
In this paper, a line driver for HomePlug AV powerline communication system has been described. The proposed line driver includes a damping factor control (DFC) network which suppressed the open loop high frequency peaking effect to improve the stability for the various characteristic impedance of powerline. The line driver was fabricated in TSMC 0.18-μm(More)
This work presents the first case of using the pseudoexhaustive testing (PET) for high-speed high-order ( -bit) adders. It is shown that all single stack-at faults are detected by a pseudoexhaustive test set of 54 K patterns, compared to patterns in the past. Also, all transition faults are detected by a pseudoexhaustive test set of 13M patterns, compared(More)
