In this work, the effect of interconnection delay on the performance of CMOS circuits operated at liquid nitrogen temperature is examined. The interconnect is modeled as a distributed RLC line driven by an optimal configuration of cascaded inverters. Using measured aluminum thin film resistivities, the delay time is predicted as a function of interconnect… CONTINUE READING
