Modeling Shared-Via Decoupling in a Multi-Layer Structure Using the CEMPIE Approach
The CEMPIE approach, a circuit extraction technique based on a mixed-potential integral equation, has been applied to model multi-layer structures including power and signal layers. Power-bus noise mitigation effects due to a decoupling capacitor were studied for several cases with different spacing between the capacitor and an integrated circuit (IC). Modeling results indicate that the capacitor sharing a common via with the IC power/ground pins is superior; viz., it results in the lowest power-bus noise under similar conditions.
