Abstract

We have developed a novel current mode multi-level simultaneous bidirectional I/O scheme for high throughput chipto- chip communications. Data are represented by multi-level currents on the transmission line instead of multi-level voltages. The current mode scheme consumes less power and is faster by reducing the voltage swing on the transmission line. Simulations based on 0.18um CMOS SPICE parameters show that the data rate is as high as 4Gb/S/Pin, and the power consumption is only 34mW.
