In this paper we present a new approach to three-dimensional capacitance extraction based on a precorrected FFT scheme. The approach is compared to the now commonly used multipole-accelerated algorithms for a variety of structures, and the new method is shown to have substantial performance and memory advantages.
It has been recently suggested that sufficiently accurate integrated circuit cross-talk simulations can be performed by computing the time evolution of electric fields both inside and outside three-dimensional integrated circuit conductors via a finite-difference dis-cretizat,ion of Laplace's equation. In this paper the same calculation is performed, but… (More)
The possibility of incredibly cheap, fantastically large media for storage gives rise to a realistic LISP memory management scheme under which GC may be postponed for days, or even indefinitely; the idea is encapsulated in the acronym "DDI" --- "GC? Don't Do It!". Tertiary memory is used to archive pages of the LISP environment which are perhaps… (More)
The proliferation of computational resources and data networks has enabled the conception and solution of information management problems of an unprecedented scale. These technologies expose vulnerabilities that may be exploited through happenstance or design. The engineering problems encountered in the design of networked data systems and software are… (More)
