On-chip conductors such as clock- and power-distribution networks require accurately modeling skin and proximity effects. Furthermore, to incorporate skin and proximity effects in the existing generic simulation tools such as SPICE, simple-frequency independent-lumped element-circuit models are needed. A rule based RL circuit model is proposed in this paper that is realizable and predicts skin and proximity effects accurately in the frequency range of interest. With this circuit model, wires are characterized by a few parallel branches of resistors and inductors while proximity effect is captured by mutual inductance between inductors in different RL circuits.
