Modeling and Analysis of VLSI Interconnects
10 May 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Cheng-Kok Koh
With continual technology scaling, the accurate and efficient modeling and simulation of interconnect effects have become problems of central importance. In order to accurately model the distributive effects of interconnects, it is necessary to divide a long wire into several segments, with each regarded as a lumped RLC element. In this tutorial, two fundamental problems in the modeling and analysis of VLSI interconnects will be covered: (i) capacitance extraction and (ii) simulation of interconnects with inductive coupling.
