We review and analyze the critical features of ultra-short range wireless links. These features will be required for advancing NoC and SoC integration to the next level, as transistor scaling and hetero-integration on silicon substrates are expected to reach their full potential by the end of the decade. Based on published transceiver data, the scalable wireless NoCs for multi-core processors and reconfigurable networks for SoCs are within reach of Si/SiGe BiCMOS technology in the next few techn...

With the increasing number of cores in chip multiprocessors, the design of an efficient communication fabric is essential to satisfy the bandwidth and energy requirements of multi-core systems. Scalable Network-on-Chip (NoC) designs are quickly becoming the standard communication framework to replace bus-based networks. However, the conventional metallic interconnects for inter-core communication consume excess energy and lower throughput which are major bottlenecks in NoC architectures. On-chip...

The performance, tunability and efficiency of double gate MOSFET (DG-MOSFET) low noise amplifier (LNA) is investigated. We propose a novel two-stage common source cascode LNA and study its gain switching properties via back gate tuning in 32 nm DG-MOSFETs that leads to variable and reconfigurable device performances not found in comparable amplifiers built with conventional CMOS architectures without additional hardware. The peak gain changes by almost 9 dB from 6 dB to 14.9 dB for back gate bia...

Wireless networks-on-chips (WINoCs) hold substantial promise for enhancing multicore integrated circuit performance, by augmenting conventional wired interconnects. As the number of cores per IC grows, intercore communication requirements will also grow, and WINoCs can be used to both save power and reduce latency. In this article, we briefly describe some of the key challenges with WINoC implementation, and also describe our example design, iWISE, which is a scalable wireless interconnect desig...

Performance, tunability and efficiency of double gate MOSFET (DG-MOSFET) based power amplifiers (PA) are investigated. Specifically, we propose two different wide-band PA topologies with 45 nm long DG-MOSFET and study their performance via computer simulations. The first one involves a modified Darlington cascode configuration with a peak gain of ∼26 dB for a 3-dB bandwidth ≥ 30 GHz. The gain flatness is less than 20% in this range. The second topology reported is a three-stage common-source wid...

We report on models developed for peer-to-peer (ground-based) wireless channels for an urban environment in the 700 MHz and 4.9 GHz bands, both allocated for public safety and “emergency responder” applications. Results are based upon measurements taken in downtown Denver, CO for link distances up to approximately 100 m. Heretofore, measurement-based models for an urban environment in these bands and for low antenna heights have not been developed. Our measurements employed a vector network anal...

There are several 60 GHz transceiver architectures that have been explored and reported in the past employing the On Off Keying (OOK) Modulation. All of these designs are primarily based on the conventional bulk CMOS architecture. In this paper, we propose a power efficient double gate (DG) MOSFET based OOK Transmitter in 32 nm DG FinFET technology. The proposed novel OOK modulator consists of only two DG-MOSFETs, making the circuit extremely power and area efficient. The LC oscillator can be tu...

Use of unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) for multiple applications is expected to grow dramatically in the coming decades; this fact has motivated this paper's focus on fundamental physical layer characteristics relevant to UAS communications. In the past, for aeronautical communications with high transmitted power levels, narrow signal bandwidths, elevated ground site antennas in open areas, and low duty cycle transmissions, simple models for channel attenuation sufficed. In the future, when UAS...

As Network-on-Chip (NoC) architectures become more relevant with an increasing number of cores on a chip, research into emerging technologies and devices to replace power hungry global metallic interconnects has become critical. In this paper, we propose a practical wireless architecture called GLOW, a global wireless interconnect for NoCs. With our ultra-low power transceivers centered at a 100 GHz carrier frequency, we present a wireless topology with a maximum bandwidth of 80 GHz. Both freque...

As both power consumption and leakage currents will limit the scalability of future massively integrated computational systems, research into emerging technologies and devices to replace traditional metallic interconnects has become critical. In this paper we propose an initial implementation for a hybrid wireless network-on-chip (WiNoC) interconnect architecture, named iWISE, for current chip multiprocessors (CMPs). iWISE combines wired interconnects with wireless links that use both frequency ...
