In this paper, we propose a novel Interconnect Driver circuit scheme for on-chip bus structures, which changes it’s drive strength based on the switching pattern of the neighbouring interconnect. The circuit is quite simple compared to driver circuits proposed in the literature. The results show that for the cost of a few transistors, the proposed driver circuit has a wider eye opening (upto a 100% improvement) and reduced jitter (up to a 32% reduction) than a traditional driver for typical DSM technologies.
