This paper describes a low-power self-terminated transmitter. A novel architecture is proposed to perform impedance matching and channel equalization with low power consumption. The test chip is fabricated using 0.18-/spl mu/m digital CMOS process with 1.8-V supply. The transmitter operates at 3.6 Gbps and consumes 9.66 mW. The total transmitter area is 0.072 mm/sup 2/.
