Low-power chip interconnection by dynamic termination

This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' Low-power chip interconnection by dynamic termination ' A low-power dynamic termination scheme is proposed and demonstrated as a way to reduce power dissipation for high-speed data transport. In this scheme, the transmission lines are terminated only if the signals change. The gate of a switching MOS transistor connected to a termination resistor is driven by differentiating the transmission signal with a resistor and a capacitor. The power dissipation of the terminating resistor can be reduced to 1/5 in the conventional determination scheme, and overshoot can be reduced to 1/5 that in the open scheme. This scheme is promising for use with palm-top equipment, facilitating high-speed low power operation.<>
