Abstract

Only a single performance parameter has so far eluded the CMOS technology, that of high clock rate. As a result, for those applications in which system clock rates above approximately 50-100 MHz are important, two alternate technologies, silicon bipolar ECL, and, to a lesser extent, the various forms of Gallium Arsenide technology, fulfill important niches in the computer and signal processor environment. The topics discussed are multichip modules, ICs for high clock rate applications, connection methods for fast chips, termination and decoupling on multichip modules (MCM), power and wideband signal connection to the MCM; thermal environment of high clock rare MCMs, MCMs operating at high clock rates, and electromagnetic modeling.
