The substrate coupling and loss in integrated circuits are analyzed. Then, the authors extract impedances between any numbers of embedded contacts. The paper aims to discuss these issues.
The paper proposes a new substrate network 3D extraction technique, adapted from a transmission line method or Green kernels, but in the whole volume.
Extracting impedances between any numbers of embedded contacts with variable shapes or/and through silicon via. This 3D method is much faster comparing with FEM
Previous works consider TSVs alone, contacts onto the substrate. The authors do study entanglement between the substrate and the interconnections.
