A sequence of numerical models has been presented to evaluate the plasmonic waveguide performance. For device-level consideration, we demonstrated through simulations that Cu (1450 nm pitch) and PLD-TiN (900 nm pitch) plasmonic waveguides symmetrically sandwiched by SiO₂ with much smaller and hence denser interconnects,are promising candidates for use in global wires for the asynchronous communication. This design of plasmonic waveguide can bridge the CMOS circuitry and high-speed communication at optical frequencies within chip. For a system-level assessment, both of them have the same bandwidth throughput of∼19.8 Gbps. The other performance parameters of Cu and PLD-TiN plasmonic waveguides are respectively, signal latency of ∼0.18 ps and 0.19 ps,energy dissipation per computing bit of ∼2.5×10⁻³ fJ/bit and 3.8×10⁻³ fJ/bit, and 25% crosstalk coupling length of 155μm and 125μm. These findings suggest that plasmonic waveguide for intra-chip communication surpass those of existing electronic interconnects for all the categories of performance parameters.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/149362||ISSN:||1943-0655||DOI:||10.1109/JPHOT.2020.3024119||Schools:||School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences||Research Centres:||Centre for Disruptive Photonic Technologies (CDPT)
