Back to the Future: Current-Mode Processor in the Era of Deeply Scaled CMOS

Abstract

This paper explores the use of MOS current-mode logic (MCML) as a fast and low noise alternative to static CMOS circuits in microprocessors, thereby improving the performance, energy efficiency, and signal integrity of future computer systems. The power and ground noise generated by an MCML circuit is typically 10-100× smaller than the noise… (More)
