Abstract

Waveform relaxation has potential to overcome problem of excessive computer run times which are necessary for simulation of larger circuits with the use of existing simulators. One of the attractive features of waveform relaxation is its suitability for parallel implementation. Amount of data necessary for interchange between parallel processors after each iteration influences the overall performance of simulation. Method of integration based on Chebyshev series provides for representation of solutions in the most compact form which makes it very attractive for parallel implementations. This paper presents some results of numerical experiments with the spectral integration applied in the relaxation framework to a number of MOS circuits.
