This paper introduces a Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) approach to modeling portions of Ball Grid Array (BGA) package interconnect circuits. A fullwave circuit model including vias, trace segments, and ground vias was generated, using a computer gridding tool, and fed into the FDTD (Taflove and Hagness, 2005) program. The simulated results were correlated with TDR measurements.
