Abstract:In this dissertation, new techniques are proposed to generate an accurate broadband macromodel for passive interconnect and packages. The physical characteristics of the structures such as stability, causality, and passivity are preserved during the model construction. Also, a new method is formulated based on vector-fitting method in z-domain. It has the advantage of faster convergence and better numerical stability compared to the s-domain vector-fitting method. The fast convergence of the method reduces the overall macromodel construction time. These macromodels are then combined with other linear blocks and nonlinear components in a circuit simulation environment.
