JAZiO Incorporated 1 Change No-Change Concept

2
JAZiO Incorporated 2 Change /No Change Concept Comp A Data In VTR Data In Comp A No Change This band is based on process mismatch (device W, L, etc.), reflection or overshoot (discontinuity, termination, inductance, etc.). 3 Case 3: Comp A remains High (weakly) while the Data Output retains the previous data Case 1: Comp A amplifies the change and the data passes through the Steering Logic Change 1 The time gap is used by the steering logic to pass the change or block the no-change from reaching the data output 1 THE GAP 1

3
JAZiO Incorporated 3 JAZiO bus is usually a terminated uniform transmission line (resistive characteristic) Differential amplifiers in the JAZiO receiver after the input protection resistance receive exponential signals (low pass filter characteristic) Tune the receiver load capacitance and input protection resistance to get desired signal and VTR slew characteristics and the change/no-change gap JAZiOs Transition Detection JAZiO receiver rejects undesired high frequency noise by doing transition detection instead of conventional peak detection!

JAZiO Incorporated 4 Note: Red area is insufficient differential for either change or no change detection; Green indicates GAP region. VTR S0 S1 S3 VTR and Signal Relationship (same levels and similar rise/fall times on VTRs versus signals) Change Early in time Quick amplification (after signal and VTR crossing) 2X the conventional signal Steering Logic Later in time (delayed from VTR/VTR crossing) Time 85 to 95% of the same bit-time Xor low crossing No Change Much later in time (after VTR and signal become equal) Slow amplification (noise and device mismatch)

5
JAZiO Incorporated 5 Note: Red area is insufficient differential for either change or no change detection; Green indicates GAP region (no change can never occur). VTR S0 S1 S3 VTR and Signal Relationship (same levels and different rise/fall times on VTRs versus signals) Change Earlier in time Quick amplification (after signal and VTR crossing) 2X the conventional signal Steering Logic Later in time (delayed from VTR/VTR crossing) Time 100 to 110% of the same bit-time Xor low crossing No Change Much later in time (cannot be in the same bit-time) Requires large noise and/or device mismatch

JAZiO Incorporated 6 Note: Red area is insufficient differential for either change or no change detection; Green indicates GAP region (no change can never occur). VTR S0 S1 S3 VTR to Signal Techniques VTR and Signal Relationship (same rise/fall times but different levels on VTRs versus signals) Change Earlier in time Quick amplification (after signal and VTR crossing) 2X the conventional signal Steering Logic Later in time (delayed from VTR/VTR crossing) Time 110 to 120% of the same bit-time Xor mid-point crossing No Change Will not occur (100mV noise margin between signal and VTR) Requires large noise and/or device mismatch

JAZiO Incorporated 8 Current Switching Technologies Change determines voltage and timing margins –Higher voltage swings increase power and noise –Slower rise/fall times reduce the set-up and hold time margins or frequency Receiver Change Margin JAZiO Switching Change is made much easier –Self timed (increased timing margins) –Larger signal (~2x) –Less noise (lower slew rate and common mode) –Low power (smaller swings, edge current, and lower termination voltage) –No set-up and hold time requirement at the pin

JAZiO Incorporated 21 Design Optimization

22
JAZiO Incorporated 22 Design Optimization Step 1 Design DC bias point of the differential amplifier to be approximately (Voh+Vol)/2 (with typical conditions) with a gain of 3 to 4 Step 2 Line up SL and SL to cross at the mid-point and look symmetrical to one other (with typical conditions) Step 3 Design the XORs to have no glitches and to cross low with 200pS skew in the external Data Input (with typical conditions). Step 4 Design the output driver for slow turn-on and turn-off, to get symmetric rise and fall times and a transition time equal to 80% of the data rate (with typical conditions) up to a max of 2nS.

JAZiO Incorporated 23 Diff-Amp Optimization VTR Data Input Output Under Typical Conditions VTR = Data Input = (Vih+Vil)/2 Data Output = ½ Vcc VTR = Data Input = Vih Data Output < (½Vcc-200mV) VTR = Data Input = Vil Data Output > (½Vcc+200mV)

24
JAZiO Incorporated 24 Data Output XOR-A SL XOR-B SL The XORs should act like a low-pass filter (slow path) First stage nand gates bias point should be approximately mid-point Second stage nand gate bias point should be 1/3 to 1/4 VCC Data Output
