Vector Potential Equivalent Circuit for Efficient Modeling of Interconnect Inductance

Authors: A. Pacelli

Affilation: SUNY-Stony Brook, United States

Pages: 343 - 346

Keywords: interconnects, inductance, vector potential, model reduction

We present a compact topology for inductive parasitics, using the vector potential as a state variable. The model is local, i.e., only coupling between neighboring wires is explicitly modeled. However, the topology accounts for long-range coupling by propagating the vector potential from one wire to the next. Examples of rule-based generation and model reduction are presented for a digital bus.
