CHAPTER 2

Modeling of Interconnection Resistances, Capacitances, and Inductances

An electrical interconnection is characterized by three parameters: Resistance, capacitance, and inductance [140]. Series resistance is an important parameter and can be rather easily determined by the material properties and dimensions of the interconnection. On the other hand, the modeling of capacitances and inductances associated with the interconnections in the high-density environment on the high-speed integrated circuit (IC) is more complicated. Here are the chapter objectives:

After going through section 2.1, students should be familiar with a few general considerations regarding interconnection resistances.

After going through section 2.2, students ...
