Paper Abstract

Passive interconnection networks are important for three reasons. First they represent an increasing percentage of the cycle time as the active devices are " scaled" . Second they contribute to di/dt coupled and reflected noise. Third higher clock frequencies are making the interconnection medium a more effective radiator especially in the 30 MHz to 1 GHz range where limits have been established by regulatory agencies such as the FCC. Approaches to understanding these phenomena will be highlighted.
