Noise analysis of flexing crossbars under the victim-aggresssor model
Item Usage Stats
This study investigates the e ects of crosstalk noise on exing crossbars, and proposes an e cient method for estimation. The estimation method is also applicable to other submicron VLSI circuits. Circuit theory is utilized to estimate crosstalk emergence due to coupling e ects and means of crosstalk reduction are investigated. Peak crosstalk noise amplitude, occurrence time, and time domain waveform are represented in closed form expressions. This research also introduces an empirical approach to compute the best case victim-aggressor alignment that minimizes the crosstalk noise on victim lines. In addition, it suggests a geometric approach reducing the adverse e ects of crosstalk noise on exing crossbars. Delay and signal quality for varied lengths of interconnect wires on interconnection networks using lossy transmission line theory are analyzed and examined in detail. Furthermore, crossbar networks are compared with other interconnection networks in terms of power consumptions.
