Abstract In this paper, we present a new and effective approach to the extraction of on-chip inductance, in which we apply approximate formulae. The equations are based on the assumption of filaments or bars of finite width and zero thickness and are derived through Taylor's expansion of the exact formula for mutual inductance between filaments. Despite the assumption of uniform current density in each of the bars, the model is sufficiently accurate for the interconnections of current and future LSIs, in which most of the wires are not affected by the skin and proximity effects. Expression of the equations in polynomial form provides a balance between accuracy and computational complexity. These equations are mapped according to the geometric structures for which they are most suitable in minimizing runtime in the calculation of inductance while remaining accurate to within 3%. Within the geometrical constraints, the wires are of arbitrary specification. From a comprehensive evaluation on the ITRS-specified global wiring structure for 2003, the values for inductance extracted through the proposed approach are within 3% of the values obtained by commercial three-dimensional (3-D) field solvers. The efficiency of the proposed approach is also demonstrated by extraction from a real layout design that has 300-k interconnecting segments.
