Abstract

"Modeling and simulating the multi-scale nature of a power distribution network (PDN) is essential to ensure the correct functioning of the devices connected to it. Simple parallel-plate sections constitute the core of these PDN geometries, together with sections where a large number of holes and vias are present, as in the case of a BGA footprint. Employing a divide-and-conquer approach allows for the modeling of these geometries separately, i.e., 3-D full wave solvers for the sections with holes and vias, and a cavity model approach, for the simple parallel-plate structures. Also, equivalent circuit models can be obtained for time-domain and frequency-domain SPICE simulations"--Abstract, page iv.
