The article describes the concept of achieving performance improvement on an SCS (Schottky Current Switch) masterslice layout by transferring the wiring capacitance of long interconnections from collector outputs to emitter follower outputs. When a high capacitance net is identified, an on-chip driver (which can be regarded as a part of a standard SCS gate) is substituted for the driving gate and an on-chip receiver placed near the receiving gate acts as a buffer for the signal.
