Designing, Packaging, and Testing a 300-MHz, 115 W ECL Microprocessor
April 1994 (vol. 14 no. 2)
pp. 50-58

A custom microprocessor implemented with 1-/spl mu/m bipolar technology operates at 300 MHz and dissipates 115 W. By using full-custom ECL technology, we achieved clock rates three to six times faster than 1-/spl mu/m CMOS processors. We designed this research prototype to develop VLSI ECL circuit techniques, a new style of CAD tools, high-performance chip interfaces, and advanced packaging techniques for high-power microprocessors.
