Dynamic crosstalk effect in multi-layer graphene nanoribbon interconnects
Multi-layer graphene nanoribbon (MLGNR) is a potential candidate for deep-nanometer-interconnect applications due to its superior conductivity and current carrying capabilities. This research paper presents an equivalent RLC model for MLGNR interconnects to study the dynamic crosstalk effect. A two-coupled line bus architecture employing CMOS driver is used to analyze the in-phase and out-phase crosstalk delays. On an average, the in-phase and out-phase crosstalk delays are improved by 4.75% and 18.04% respectively for MLGNR with higher number of layers as compared to the lesser ones.
