This paper describes a new algorithm for the analysis of multiconductor transmission lines characterized by frequency-dependent per-unit-length parameters. The proposed model is based on studying telegrapher's equations as a Sturm-Liouville problem. The open-end impedance matrix is expressed in a series form as an infinite sum of matrices of rational functions, derived from the series form of the dyadic Green's function. The rational form of the open-end impedance matrix allows an easy identification of poles and residues and, thus, the development of a reduced-order system of the interconnect. The pole-residue representation can be synthesized in an equivalent circuit or converted into a state-space model, which can be easily embedded into conventional nonlinear circuit SPICE-like solvers. The numerical results confirm the validity of the proposed modeling technique.
