This paper investigates a canonical printed circuit board (PCB) problem using both a method of moments (MoM) and a partial element equivalent circuit (PEEC) modeling technique. The problem consists of a PCB populated with three traces. One trace is a signal line and the other two are I/O lines that couple to the signal line and extend beyond the boundary of the board. Although the MoM code was a frequency domain code and the PEEC code was a time-domain code, good agreement was achieved in both the time-domain and the frequency-domain
