The interconnect bottleneck presents a compelling reason to explore novel interconnect architectures. In this work, we have quantified and compared the performance of two promising interconnects: carbon nanotube (CNT) and optical interconnects with the scaled Cu/low-k on-chip and off-chip interconnects for future high-performance ICs.
