Rapid technology scaling along with the continuous increase in the operation frequency cause the crosstalk noise to become a major source of performance degradation in high-speed integrated circuits. This paper presents an efficient metric to estimate the capacitive crosstalk in nanometer high-speed very large scale integration circuits. In particular, we provide closed-form expressions for the peak amplitude, the pulsewidth, and the time-domain waveform of the crosstalk noise. Experimental results show that the maximum error of our noise predictions is less than 13%, while the average error is only 5.82%.
