Due to decreasing device sizes and increasing clock speed, interconnect inductance is becoming an important factor in the on-chip delay analysis of deep submicrometer technologies. This delay has been represented as an RC model in the available electric design automation tools. In this paper, we model the on-chip interconnect as a RLC for systems running at multigigahertz frequencies. A static-extraction analysis method optimized for ASICs is detailed. It considers all the lines within the vicinity of the target signal line as return paths.
