Energy efficient current-mode signaling scheme


This paper describes a novel energy-efficient current-mode signaling scheme (CMS scheme) for long on-chip interconnects. The scheme was fabricated in 180nm process. Measurement results show that the proposed 6mm long link offers 22% improvement in delay with 81% lower energy consumption at 0.62Gbps over the voltage-mode scheme. The proposed scheme offers 20… (More)
