Abstract: The scaling of copper wires and the increase in signal switching speed produce transient crosstalk coupling between interconnect lines, which causes overshoots and additional time delay. The time-domain analysis of CMOS gates driving next-generation interconnects consisting of single wall carbon nanotube (SWCNT) bundles or multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) is carried out. Accurate simulation models of SWCNT bundles and MWCNTs are proposed in the frequency domain by using both the multiconductor transmission …
