Reconfigurable self-timed regenerators for wide-range voltage scaled interconnect


A reconfigurable self-timed regenerator based global interconnect scheme enables graceful degradation of performance and power in wide range dynamic voltage/frequency scaled systems. A test chip demonstrates up to 40% and 25% better performance scaling than a traditional repeater based interconnect at 1V and 0.5V, respectively, in 45nm SOI CMOS.
