This paper presents a new algorithm for calculating the resistance of an arbitrarily shaped polygon within a VLSI mask layout analysis program. In contrast to earlier approaches no polygon decomposition is required. Instead the current flow is determined by a routing algorithm. The resistance approximation is derived from the current flow. Experimental results have shown that this new algorithm achieves accurate results in comparatively little time.
