Effects of simultaneous switching noise on the tapered buffer design


Complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) output buffers, comprised of a series of tapered inverters, are used to drive large off-chip capacitances. The ratio of the size of transistors between two consecutive stages is the buffer taper factor. With higher frequency of operation and simultaneous switching of the output drivers, the parasitic inductance… (More)
