Clock net optimization using active shielding

Abstract

We propose the use of active shields, which are shield wires that are switched concurrently with the signal wire, to improve performance and reduce inductive ringing for RLC wires. This technique significantly reduces ringing behaviour (up to 4.5/spl times/) and offers better slopes (up to 40% reduction) and signal propagation delays than the traditional… (More)
