With high operation frequencies, the effects of interconnects must be accounted for in the design of digital circuits. Interconnects can be modeled with RLC circuits, which are typically very large. Special order-reduction algorithms, which produce a smaller frequency-domain model of the interconnect , have been developed in the literature. Linking between(More)
—This paper proposes a new second-order Model-Order Reduction (MOR) method suitable for reducing very large sized RC circuits or RC circuit parts of a non-RC circuit. The MOR is carried out on a partitioned circuit, which enables the use of low-order moments and macromodels of few elements. It is shown that the use of the second-order MOR method in(More)
