In the last decade an important shift has taken place in the design of hardware with the advent of smaller and denser integrated circuits and packages. Analysis techniques are required to ensure the proper electrical functioning of this hardware. In this paper we give a coherent survey of the modeling and computer-aided design techniques applicable to solving these problems. Methods are considered for the computation of resistances, capacitances, and inductances. Also, an extensive list of references is given.
