IEEE SWISS SSCS TALK : Circuits and Signaling Co-Design for Ultra-Wideband Communications by Prof. Armin Tajalli


Modern multi-core multi-processor computing systems rely on high-bandwidth data communication between different units in such distributed systems. Chip-to-chip communication over very short distances is now becoming a very demanding topic of research. Due to heat, yield, and performance concerns, many companies are moving toward multi-chip-module (MCM) SoCs.

In such systems, the data rate as well as energy consumption are extremely crucial. Due to stringent power budget, industry is seeking out for new design methodologies to implement very dense and energy-efficient links. The main focus of this talk is on techniques to implement such high-performance links over copper. Using novel circuit architectures in conjunction with low ISI sensitivity signaling method allows to implement very energy-efficient and very high-speed links.
