Goal: Position the U.S. at the forefront of communications and computation capability beyond the physical and conceptual limitations of current technologies. Description and Scientific Rationale: Moore's Law refers to the empirical observation made in 1965 that computer processing power, based on semiconductor integrated circuits, doubles about every 18(More)
W ith the recent introduction of dual-core processors, the wide-scale transition to parallel processing may have finally begun. How will multicore processing evolve and what will be the dominant computer architecture of the future? As technology reaches the limits of CMOS and beyond, the physical realities of computing hardware may dictate the answer to(More)
This paper describes a low-power design methodology for a bus architecture based on hybrid current/voltage mode signaling for deep sub-micrometer on-chip interconnects that achieves high data transmission rates while minimizing the number of repeaters by nearly 1/3. The technique uses low-impedance current-mode sensing to increase the data throughput and(More)
