In this chapter, a continuous-time multiple-input and multiple-output crosstalk cancellation and reutilization (MIMO-XTCR) architecture operating at 2–6 Gb/s has been presented. The performance of the XTCR equalizer has been measured with various spacings of FR4 channels and data rates. The crosstalk energy reutilization (XTR) technique efficiently handles crosstalk and achieves high signal integrity in severe crosstalk environments where crosstalk had completely closed the data eye. Measurement results show improvement in jitter p−p and vertical opening of the eye-diagram by 67 %UI and 58.2 % respectively, which is the best known improvement to date. The MIMO-XTCR portion occupies 0.03mm2 and consumes 2.8 mW/Gbps/lane, which is 2 times lower than previously proposed XTC schemes.
