Paper Abstract

Today's increasing data rates in digital communication circuits are demanding higher speeds in the interchip communication. This throughput can be achieved using high rate serial links. Good noise inmunity can be obtained by means of differential strategies and an important power reduction can be obtained by using current mode operation. In this paper, a innovative differential current mode transmitter/receiver pair is presented which combines both, good noise inmunity with low power dissipation.
