We present a comparative analysis of different physical approaches to chip-to-chip proximity communication, PxC, based on capacitive, inductive and optical signalling. Each method is modeled theoretically and the tolerances for packaging are identified. Analytical formulas for performance in terms of the pad size and pad spacing are derived and compared to reported experimental data. The tolerance of each communication method to misalignment is reported. The design space in terms of channel… CONTINUE READING
