Abstract or Summary
  • The electrical performance of on-chip interconnects has become a limiting factor to the performance of modern integrated circuits including RFICs, mixed-signal circuits, as well as high-speed VLSI circuits due to increasing operating frequencies, chip areas, and integration densities. It is advantageous to have fast and accurate closed-form expressions for the characteristics of on-chip interconnects to facilitate fast simulation and computer-aided design (CAD) of integrated circuits. This thesis work is mainly concerned with the analysis and the methodology of developing closed-form expressions for the frequency-dependent line parameters R(ω), L(ω), G(ω), and C(ω) for microstrip-type on-chip interconnects on silicon substrate. The complete solutions of the frequency-dependent line parameters are formulated in terms of corresponding lossless/static configurations for both single and coupled microstrip-type on-chip interconnects. The series impedance parameters are developed using a complex image approach, which represents the complicated loss effects in the semiconducting silicon substrate. The shunt admittance parameters are developed using low- and high-frequency asymptotic solutions based on the shunt equivalent circuit models. The closed-form expressions are shown to be in good agreement with full-wave and quasi-static electromagnetic solutions. Based on the proposed closed-form solutions, a new on-chip interconnect extractor tool, CELERITY, is implemented. It is shown that the new tool can significantly reduce the simulation time compared with a quasi-static EM-based tool. The proposed extraction technique should be very useful in the design of silicon-based integrated circuits.
