This paper describes a 16:1 multiplexer using 0.18 μm SOI-CMOS technology. To realize ultra-high-speed operations, the multiplexer adapts a pipeline structure and a phase shift technique together with a selector architecture. This architecture takes advantage of the small junction capacitances of the SOI-CMOS devices. The multiplexer achieves 3.6 Gb/s at a supply voltage of 2.0 V, while dissipating only 30 mW at the core circuit and 340 mW for the whole chip which includes the I/O buffers.
