The large number of ports in an interconnect structure is a critical limiting factor when applying model-order reduction. This is due to the fact that the size of the reduced model grows rapidly with increasing the number of ports, leading to large and dense circuit matrices. To address this problem, a novel method based on transverse partitioning and(More)
This paper describes a new algorithm for the analysis of high-speed interconnects characterized by frequency-dependent per-unit-length parameter matrices. The proposed technique is based on using the idea of integrated congruence transform to construct a reduced-order system for the interconnect. The reduced-order system offers simple time-domain ordinary(More)
Mission assurance requires effective, near-real time defensive cyber operations to appropriately respond to cyber attacks, without having a significant impact on operations. The ability to rapidly compute, prioritize and execute network-based courses of action (CoAs) relies on accurate situational awareness and mission-context information. Although diverse(More)
Due to the rapid surge in operating frequencies and complexity of modern VLSI designs, fast and accurate EMC/EMI analysis is becoming mandatory. This paper presents a closed-form SPICE macromodel for fast transient analysis of lossy multiconductor transmission lines in the presence of incident electromagnetic fields. In the proposed algorithm, the(More)
Time-domain macromodeling of high speed interconnects characterized by distributed transmission lines has generated immense interest during the recent years. It has been demonstrated that, preserving passivity of the macromodel is essential to guarantee a stable global transient simulation. In this paper, a SPICE compatible closed-form passive macromodel(More)
