Abstract—This paper describes a computer program for analyzing a class of transmission line configurations which arise in the design of memory arrays. The systems analyzed by the program consist of interconnected pairs of mutually coupled distributed parameter transmission lines driven and terminated by linear lumped element networks. A brief discussion of the mathematical model and its implementation is given and applications of the program to the design of 2½D and 3D memory arrays are described. The applications illustrate how the program can be used to evaluate pulse propagation characteristics and noise generation mechanisms within a memory array.
