LC resonant clock resource minimization using compensation capacitance

Abstract

Distributed-LC resonant clock distribution is a viable technique to reduce clock distribution network (CDN) dynamic power. However, resonant clocks can require significant on-chip resources to form the inductors and decoupling capacitors which discourages adoption. This paper uses a compensation capacitor (Cc) to reduce the overhead of the on-chip inductor… (More)
