CAD Implications of New Interconnect Technologies
This paper looks at the CAD implications of possible new interconnect technologies. We consider three technologies in particular: three dimensional ICs, carbon nanotubes as a replacement for metal interconnects, and optical interconnections for longer range on-chip communication. Each of these requires new CAD support to be used effectively.
