Title: Low-latency bi-directional repeater

Abstract

A repeater circuit is disclosed. The repeater circuit is coupled to a transmission line driven by a first transmitter circuit and configured to detect a signal transition from a first voltage level to a second voltage level at a first position on the transmission line. The repeater circuit then reinforces the signal transition from the second voltage level to a third voltage level at the first position on the transmission line without interrupting a current through the transmission line.
