  • A 3.77 nW, 11.4 fJ/b/mm link for reliable wireline communication in ultra-low power on-body sensor networks

    Self-powered systems prove useful in health monitoring and fitness tracking, especially in the wearable space. Existing many-node on-body systems monitor health and use power hungry wireless radios. We introduce a reliable wireline transceiver in 130 nm CMOS to address the communication power problem. The transmitter uses complementary source followers for a reduced swing without static current. The receiver uses a subthreshold continuous time comparator with a configurable bias generator for a large voltage operating range and minimal sleep power. A contention free SR latch efficiently stores received data. The transceiver is demonstrated with a 3m (pessimistic) Ethernet cable and a flexible textile-based interconnect. Through Ethernet, the transceiver achieves 1e-9 BER, consuming 5.42 nW with efficiency of 1.20 fJ/b/mm and 585 pW sleep power. Through the textile, it achieves 1e-6 BER, consuming 3.77 nW and 11.4 fJ/b/mm and enables on-body self-powered integrated systems.

  • Wireline/wireless RF-Interconnect for future SoC

    In the era of the nanometer CMOS technology, due to stringent system requirements in power, performance and other fundamental physical limitations (such as mechanical reliability, thermal constraints, overall system form factor, etc.), future SOC systems are relying more on ultra-high data rates scalable, re-configurable, highly compact and reliable interconnect fabric. To overcome such challenges, we explore the use of multiband wireline and wireless RF-Interconnect (RF-I) which can communicate simultaneously through multiple frequency bands with low power signal transmission, reconfigurable bandwidth and excellent mechanical flexibility and reliability. In this paper, we review recent advances in wireline and wireless RF-I in three different potential application domains, which include Network-on-Chips (NoCs), advanced memory interface and ultra-high speed contactless connectors.

  • A Multiband Transceiver System in 45-nm CMOS for Extended Data Rate through Notchy Wireline Channels

    Various forms of discontinuities such as stubs, vias, and wire bonds can result in deep amplitude notches in wireline channels. The data rate for systems operating using such channels, in the absence of a power-hungry decision-feedback equalizer (DFE), is limited by the lowest notch frequency of the channel. This brief proposes a multiband transceiver system to overcome this limitation by upconverting part of the data using an on-off keying modulation to avoid operating near the notch frequency and multiplexes it with the original baseband data. The transceiver system implemented in 45-nm low- power CMOS and shows a 10%-50% increase in data rate with a power saving of 5%-30% over a traditional broadband system employing a DFE in exemplary channels.

  • Optimizing maintenance efficiency in OFDMA-PONs supporting wireline-wireless convergence

    Nowadays, the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technology applied on a Passive Optical Network (PON) has been proposed. The unified virtual subcarrier scheduling has been achieved using virtualization, to hide the differences of heterogeneous multiplexing ways and well optimize the performances of the OFDMA-PON supporting ubiquitous service. In a multi- segment OFDMA-PON, each segment connects with a distribution fibre. If all distribution fibres are under maintenance simultaneously, it will disrupt the service continuity, thus it necessitates the proposition of an appropriate virtual subcarrier scheduling scheme. In this paper, by using virtual subcarrier migrations during each maintenance batch, only a partial set of distribution fibres are maintained, leaving the remaining ones still on to fully support operations. Correspondingly, we formulate this problem aiming to minimize the number of maintenance batches with guaranteeing an acceptable service delay. By simulations, a good trade-off solution is achieved for maintenance efficiency and service delay in the OFDMA-PON supporting wireline- wireless convergence.

  • Clocking Wireline Systems: An Overview of Wireline Design Techniques

    Over the last several decades, digital communications technologies combined with integrated circuit scaling trends have enabled the microelectronic industry to dramatically scale the bandwidth of high-loss networks such as DSL and Ethernet. These channel-limited applications depend on sophisticated equalization techniques to push well beyond the uncompensated bandwidth of the system. And in the last two decades, short-distance wireline links used for chip-to-chip communication applications have enjoyed equally impressive data rate scaling??from a few hundred megabits per second per lane to multigigabits per second in products with volumes in the billions of units.

  • A 0.5-to-0.9V, 3-to-16Gb/s, 1.6-to-3.1pJ/b wireline transceiver equalizing 27dB loss at 10Gb/s with clock-domain encoding using integrated pulse-width modulation (iPWM) in 65nm CMOS

    Improving the energy efficiency of wireline interconnects has become a necessity to sustain growing data rates. Low-voltage wireline link operation is a promising approach to achieve close to pico-joules/bit energy efficiency [1-3]. However, conventional low-voltage wireline links suffer from two limitations: (a) limited equalization (12dB) or no channel equalization, and (b) low data rates (8Gb/s @0.75V) even with fine process technology nodes [2]. Limited equalization in low-voltage links is due to the fact that conventional equalization (FFE, DFE) is performed on the high-speed data path. As a result, when the supply voltage is reduced (below 0.6V), the bandwidth of the data path is severely diminished, which compromises FFE and DFE operation. Moreover, the requirement to generate and transport narrow clock pulses in conventional low-voltage output drivers limits the maximum achievable data rates [1,3]. In view of these limitations, we propose a new approach to equalize heavy channel loss at low supply voltages by moving the equalizing operation out of the data path and into the clock path. Integrated pulse width modulation (iPWM) has been demonstrated to efficiently equalize heavy channel loss by encoding data transition edges [4]. In this work, we present a modified iPWM encoding, an energy-efficient wireline transceiver with a clock- domain low-voltage iPWM encoder, and a low-voltage multiplexer + output driver architecture, which can operate from 0.5-to-0.9V and 3-to-16Gb/s compensating 27dB channel loss at 10Gb/s with an energy efficiency of 1.8pJ/b. Compared to prior low-voltage links [2], the proposed transceiver can compensate 15dB higher loss at 25% higher data rate (10Gb/s) operating at 13% lower supply voltage (0.65V) while using an older technology node (65nm). Compared to state-of-the-art iPWM-based wireline transceiver operating at nominal supply voltage [4], the proposed transceiver achieves 2.5x lower energy/bit while compensating similar channel loss, and compared to a conventional equalization-based transceiver it compensates 8dB higher loss with similar energy efficiency [5].

  • A Radiation-Hardened and ESD-Optimized Wireline Driver With Wide Terminal Common-Mode Voltage Range

    In complex environment, the wireline voltage driver should be compatible with wide-terminal common-mode range, electrostatic discharge (ESD), and radiation interference. The most vulnerable devices in the conventional driver are the nMOS transistor and the silicon-controlled rectifier (SCR) against negative the ESD shock, total dose radiation, and single-event latch-up. In this paper, a reliable wireline driver circuit is proposed compatible with -7 ~ 12-V terminal common-mode voltage range. By adopting face-to-face diodes, pMOS/n-p-n hybrid driver, and Schottky diodes, the proposed driver circuit demonstrates significant protection level improvement for both ESD and radiation. Both the reference SCR-based driver and the proposed driver with the optimized circuit design and protection strategy are fabricated using a 0.6-μm bipolar-CMOSDMOS process. Due to a simpler circuit structure, the proposed output stage has about 10% less chip area. According to the measurement results, the human-body-model ESD level of 3 kV, total dose radiation level of 100 krad(Si), and single-event effect level of 75 MeV·cm2/mg are achieved in the proposed design to satisfy complex environment applications.
