It is shown in this paper that the optimum position of interleaved repeaters for minimum delay and noise is not the midpoint as commonly practiced. A closed form solution for the optimum position has been derived in this paper and verified by simulation. Bi-directional buses with the optimum interleaved repeater position are compared to commonly used bi-directional buses and shown to provide an improvement of as much as 100% in both the propagation delay and bit-rate per unit area. The area of
