This paper addresses the problem of scaling interconnects to nanometric dimensions in future VLSI applications. Traditional copper interconnects are compared to innovative ones made by bundles of metallic carbon nanotubes. A new model is presented to describe propagation along CNT bundles, in the framework of the classical transmission line theory. A possible future scaled CNT bundle microstrip is analyzed and compared to a conventional microstrip.
