The diagonal-pair line structure is proposed as a differential transmission line, which achieves high speed and low power signal transmission in Si ULSI. This paper investigates transmission characteristics of the diagonal-pair line with time-domain measurements and electromagnetic simulations. 3 Gbps signal propagation can be achieved by one-cm-long diagonal-pair line, which is fabricated by 0.35 μm CMOS process. Simulated results show that the proposed transmission line can transmit 30 Gbps signal.
