### Macromodeling of high-speed interconnects by positive interpolation of vertical segments

(2013) APPLIED MATHEMATICAL MODELLING. 37(7). p.4874-4882- abstract
- State-of-the-art interconnect design is very challenging. Designers are facing ever more stringent design specifications expressed in terms of bandwidth, speed, crosstalk, signal attenuation, etc. that dictate the need for powerful modeling tools. It is of a paramount importance that these tools are able to very accurately incorporate all substrate loss mechanisms and the finite conductivity and shape of the metallic interconnects. From this perspective, macromodels describing all high-frequency behavior are extremely useful to analyze the signal integrity (SI) behavior of the interconnects. Often, interconnect structures are characterized by using their cross-sectional geometry in a two-dimensional (2-D) electromagnetic (EM) simulation, leading up to a corresponding transmission line model [1]. An accurate description of the interconnects is then provided in terms of their per unit of length (p.u.1.) resistance (R), inductance (L), conductance (G) and capacitance (C) parameters, yielding so-called RLGC(f) models. Here, f denotes the frequency, as such indicating the frequency-dependent character of the p.u.l. parameters. For a comprehensive overview of such modeling methods, the reader is encouraged to consult [1] and the references therein. For on-chip lines that are electrically very short, sometimes, the p.u.l. resistance R and capacitance C are dominant (RC regime). In the present paper, however, all four p.u.l. parameters are considered, making the approach more general and also valid at very high frequencies. Thereto, a very accurate 2-D EM modeling procedure, making use of a Dirichlet-to-Neumann (DtN) boundary operator, is used as a starting point [2]. This method
