Trends in CMOS technology and VLSI architectures are causing interconnect to play an increasing role in overall performance, power consumption and design effort. Traditionally, repeaters are used for driving long on-chip interconnects, however recent studies indicate that repeaters are using increasing area, power, and design resources as well as having an inherent limit in how much they can improve performance [4,10,14]. This paper presents a new circuit called a {\bf booster} which compares… CONTINUE READING
