Preface

Moore's Law continues to guide the semiconductor technology road map. As the feature size of integrated circuits (ICs) reaches 65 nm today, and moves to 45, 32, and 22 nm in the near future, it will give IC systems more functionality and data-handling capability. A complex and functionality-rich system needs fast input/output (I/O) to be efficient. As a result, we see that the I/O speed keeps increasing as the number of transistors keeps increasing for advanced IC systems.

Although decreasing feature size and increasing I/O speed enable better system capability and performance, they also introduce technological challenges. One of the most important challenges is jitter as I/O speed increases, because the unit interval (UI), the total ...
