Abstract : Three problems dealing with the modeling of wires in integrated circuits are considered: (i) fast and efficient calculation for mutual inductance, using the dipole approximation; (ii) compact expansion of non-uniform currents in conductors at high frequencies, in terms of conduction modes; and (iii) accurate representation of frequency dependent resistance-inductance behavior with constant circuit parameters, in the form of Foster pairs. We propose and implement solutions and optimizations for these problems based on simple physical arguments. All three problems are integrated within Mentor Graphic's extraction tools.
