Optimal design of clock trees for multigigahertz applications

Abstract

With the onset of gigahertz frequencies on clocked digital systems, inductance effects become significant. We investigate appropriate regimes where signal propagation on an IC can be characterized as resulting from transmission line (TL) behavior. The signals propagate at a speed in the proximity of the speed of light in the medium. Our starting points are… (More)
