Title: Current control technique

Abstract: An output driver circuit and current control technique to facilitatehigh-speed buses with low noise is used to interface with high-speeddynamic RAMs (DRAMs). The architecture includes the following components:an input isolation block (120), an analog voltage divider (104), an inputcomparator (125), a sampling latch (130), a current control counter (115),and a bitwise output driver (output driver A 107 and output driver B 111).
