Abstract

This paper describes a systematic methodology for the electromagnetic modeling of complex power distribution networks. The proposed methodology uses locally three-dimensional (3-D) modifications to an otherwise two-dimensional (2-D) description of the behavior of electromagnetic fields between power/ground plane pairs, to model correctly the field behavior at discontinuities such as vias, pins, as well as splits in the power/ground plane structure. Furthermore, a systematic synthesis methodology is presented for the direct generation of a SPICE-compatible multiport macro-model for the power distribution network from its discrete quasi 3-D model. The proposed modeling and equivalent circuit synthesis methodologies are validated through a specific numerical simulation study of the transient electromagnetic analysis of a power/ground plane pair during switching.
