This paper presents a 10 fJ/bit inductive-coupling data link operating at 0.55 V supply voltage and a 135 fJ/cycle clock link at 0.7 V supply voltage. A dual-coil transmission scheme reduces the number of stacked transistors in a transmitter, enabling low-voltage and hence low-power operation. A test chip is fabricated in 65 nm CMOS whose nominal supply voltage is 1.2 V. A data rate of 1.1 Gb/s and a clock rate of 3.3 GHz, both with an error rate <; 10-12, are achieved at 0.55 V and 0.7 V supply voltage, respectively.
