A perspective study about the effect of carbon nanotube compared with copper interconnects in the H-tree distributed clock network - used for routing clock signals inside a chip - in nanoelectronic systems will be developed based on simulation models. Important features for circuit design, such as low logic level, high logic level, rise time, slew rate, attenuation, delay time, dissipated power and delay-power product will be evaluated by computer simulations. Results will show that distributed networks based on carbon nanotube interconnects are able to operate at terahertz frequencies.
