Abstract

Abstract—The fundamental limit on signal energy transfer during a binary switching transition is @���A a @ PA. Derivation of precisely this result based on two entirely distinct physical models confirms its validity. The first model is an ideal MOSFET operating in a CMOS inverter circuit at the limit of its capacity for binary signal discrimination. The second is an isolated interconnect treated as a noisy communication channel. Both models are relevant to modern terascale integration. Index Terms—Binary switching energy limits, fundamental limits, gigascale integration limits, limits, terascale integration limits. I.
