This paper discusses propagation delay error, transient response, and power consumption distribution due to inductive effects in optimal buffered on-chip interconnects. Inductive effect is said to be important to consider in deep submicron (DSM) VLSI design. However, study shows that the effect decreases and can be neglected in next technology nodes for such conditions.
