Globally synchronous, multi-drop, bidirectional microprocessor system interfaces have the advantages of low latency and no synchronization penalty, and typically run at 100-120 MHz. Maximum operating frequency is limited by the time required for a signal transition initiated at the driving end to settle and reliably get sampled at the receiving end. Typical source-terminated systems (such as HSTL) require a round-trip transmission-line propagation delay to terminate the signal. With parallel… CONTINUE READING
