To exploit time-domain latency in circuit simulation using direct methods, an accurate, computationally efficient model for slowly moving, dormant portions of the circuit is required. A new, implicit integration method, the overdetermined polynomial method (ODPM), has been developed which permits the formulation of an accurate latent model. Using the ODPM integration method, the Jacobian of a dormant subcircuit need not be reevaluated over a large number of time steps of varying size. An accurate Norton equivalent circuit that emulates the impedance and current characteristics of the subcircuit can be obtained without reevaluation of the Jacobian or nonlinear charge computations. This new approach for utilizing latency produces significant improvements in circuit simulation speed with no decrease in accuracy or generality. The authors have demonstrated speed gains of 3 to 20 times over TISPICE for several large circuits
