Abstract

This paper reviews two recently proposed models to describe electrical interconnects in huge frequency ranges. The models are both derived from a full-wave integral formulation of the electromagnetic problem. First an analytical generalized transmission line model is presented which can describe high-frequency non-TEM behavior of the electrical interconnects. Then a numerical model based on the facet finite elements is described, which is suitable for characterization of full 3D interconnects from zero to microwave frequencies. The validity limits of the models are discussed, and some numerical simulations of case-studies are carried out, to test their effectiveness and to compare them.
