We have developed a new circuit scheme that reduces the delay time caused by large interconnection resistances. Also, this circuit immunizes cross talk caused at scaled interconnections of sub-quarter micron ULSIs. The reduction of the delay time is 60% and output fluctuation is improved to negligibly small magnitude. The proposed circuit can be applied to bi-directional signal communication without adding further hardware and is extremely useful for sub-quarter micron ULSIs with scaled resistive interconnections.
