**Interconnect Model de facto PEEC model is expensive**

Accurate model needs detailed discretization of conductors Distributed RLC circuit has coupling inductance between any two segments Total 3,278,080 elements for 128b bus with 20 segments per line 162M storage of SPICE netlist small surface panels with constant charge thin volume filaments with constant current As we all know, the de dacto interconnet model is based on peec. As whon in the figure, the accurate peec model needs deialed … We needs the volume decopostion for non-uniform current distribution; and also surface decompstion for non-unifrom chage distruibusion; and finall we also needs segemnt the conductor along it s length due to quisa-staic approximation. Anotherhorribale fact is that there are lots of coupling inductances between any pairs of dicretized conductors. Therefore the complxicity of reslued peec circuits is very hgih. For exampe

**Challenge of Inductance Sparisification**

Partial inductance matrix L is not diagonal dominant Direct truncation results loss of passivity Existing passivity-guaranteed sparsification methods lack accuracy or theoretical justification Returned-loop [Shepard:TCAD’00] Shift-truncation (shell) [Krauter:ICCAD’95] K-element [Devgan:ICCAD’00] Localized VPEC [Pacelli:ICCAD’02] Given the dense Lp it can’t be directly truncated since the Lp is not digonal dominant matrix. Therefore it becomes the bottlemneck for accurate pee simulation in spice. Therere lots of passivity-guranteed inductance sparsication mehtods such as … However most of them lack accuracy or theorectical justifications. Here I’ll breifly reviwew the k-elemnt mehthod.

**K-Element Method K-method Windowing Wire-duplication Inductwise**

Observe that the inversion of L is M-matrix [Devgan:ICCAD’00] Need to extend SPICE to simulate K-element [Ji: DAC’01] Windowing Extract the K-elements of sub-matrices to avoid full inversion [Beattie: DATE’01] Wire-duplication Improve the accuracy of windowing method [Zhong: ICCAD’02, DAC’03] Inductwise Heuristic bi-section the longest wire to guarantee K as M-matrix [Chen:ICCAD’02] The k-ememnt mehtod isproposed by devagn two years agao. Bascilly they observe that the invesion of L matrix is a M-matrix, say all the off-dignal elemmnts are negtive,and all the digonal eleemnts are dominant. Acutally the matrix in this form will be strictly pdgonal domiant matrix. Futherempre, sinc ethe cirtcuit element has changed from L to K, we need extend the spice to handle the Kelement based simulation. The windfowing base dmehtd is prosed to extract the k-eleemnt (or suscpetance) of the sub-matrix to avoid the full inversion of L. howver It is obvious that the resluted elements are not accurate compared to results from full inversion. The wire-duplication mehtod is then poposed to impove the accuracy of such kind of windowing mehod. In some very special geometry settings, the obtained K matrix will not be strictly M-matrix. The inducwise has propose the Hruris bi-section of the longese wire to gurantted the k matrix as the M-matricx. Fiunally lots of interesting work has been propsoed for k-eement based model order reducction.

**Vector Potential Equations for Inductive Effect**

Vector potential for filament i ith Filament Integral equation for inductive effect Volume Integration Line Integration We use the filament assupmtion, say all the objects here are filaments with uniform current distribution along z-direction, and legnth l. Let’s then begin tow diffe maxwell equs. Where the first one is the possion-like spacially differnicl,and second is the time-dereivative equation. We then define the node vecto poteial as the average of total vector potential inside the controlled volume omen accociated with Ith filament. Based on these basicis, we can derive the following VPEC circuit equation.

**Recap of VPEC Circuit Model**

Inherit resistances and capacitances from PEEC Inductances are modeled by: Effective resistances Controlled current/voltage sources Unit self-inductance Much fewer reactive elements leads to faster SPICE simulation Note that right now we have much less reactive elements, and as shown in the experiement it converges faster than peec model During spice simulation

27
**Runtime Scaling Circuit: one segment per line for buses**

The runtime grows much faster for full PEEC than for full VPEC full PEEC is 47x faster for 256-bit bus due to reduced number of reactive elements Sparsified VPEC reduces runtime by 1000x with bounded error for large scale interconnects
