    Abstract

    Global on-chip communication is rapidly becoming a speed and power bottleneck in CMOS circuits. In this paper, a ‘mixed-signal’ approach is taken to analyze on-chip interconnects and it is investigated how data-rates can be improved. It is shown that complex signaling schemes such as OFDM and CDMA are not efficient to improve the data-rate, while equalization can significantly improve the achievable data-rate. A combination of an equalizing transmitter with a low-ohmic receiver can improve the achievable data-rate by about a factor of 7.
