A major bottleneck in high-speed signaling is the simultaneous switching noise (SSN), which is caused by simultaneously switching output buffers. SSN is a result of the coupling between the signal lines and the power delivery network (PDN) in off-chip signaling. This coupling occurs at discontinuities of the transmission line, wherever there is an interruption of the current return path. A particular location where there is a return path discontinuity is the output buffer that is connected to a… CONTINUE READING
