Inductive peaking using T-coils has been widely used in broadband I/O interfaces. In this paper, we analyze technical effects and limitations of the T-coil, and discuss several methods that can overcome these restrictions and improve the practicality of the T-coil. In particular we also propose and verify a circuit topology which can further extend bandwidth beyond the limit that conventional T-coil can achieve, and transfer 20 Gb/s data without noticeable distortion.
