Interconnections are felt to be a very fundamental limit to future performance in VLSI. In circuits that are functionally partitioned, the average interconnection length scales with the devices, yielding new concepts for information flow in chips. From this concept, one can talk about hardware and I/O efficiencies which can be used to describe limitations on signal channels and their ability to carry information. Close packing of interconnections also leads to parametric coupling, which gives a filtering of the signals and imposes new limits upon the lines themselves.
