We present a new parametric macromodeling technique for lossy and dispersive multiconductor transmission lines (MTLs), that is suitable to interconnect modeling. It is based on a recently introduced spectral approach for the analysis of lossy and dispersive MTLs extended by utilizing the Multivariate Orthonormal Vector Fitting (MOVF) technique to build parametric macromodels in a rational form. They can handle design parameters, such as substrate or geometrical layout features, in addition to frequency. The presented technique is suited to generate state-space models and synthesize equivalent circuits, which can be easily embedded into conventional SPICE-like solvers. Parametric macromodels allow to carry out design space exploration, design optimization and crosstalk analysis efficiently. A numerical example validates the proposed approach in both frequency and time domain and is focused on the crosstalk analysis.

Abstract

We present a new parametric macromodeling technique for lossy and dispersive multiconductor transmission lines (MTLs), that is suitable to interconnect modeling. It is based on a recently introduced spectral approach for the analysis of lossy and dispersive MTLs extended by utilizing the Multivariate Orthonormal Vector Fitting (MOVF) technique to build parametric macromodels in a rational form. They can handle design parameters, such as substrate or geometrical layout features, in addition to frequency. The presented technique is suited to generate state-space models and synthesize equivalent circuits, which can be easily embedded into conventional SPICE-like solvers. Parametric macromodels allow to carry out design space exploration, design optimization and crosstalk analysis efficiently. A numerical example validates the proposed approach in both frequency and time domain and is focused on the crosstalk analysis.
