With continually increasing operating frequencies, analysis of electromagnetic interference (EMI)-related effects is becoming an important issue for high-speed designs. In this paper, an algorithm is presented for fast analysis of radiation and incident field coupling effects in high-speed circuits. The proposed technique provides an efficient means for combining the solutions from full-wave field solvers such as finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method with circuit level simulators such as SPICE for calculating radiated/coupled fields in arbitrarily shaped interconnect structures. The technique speeds up the whole simulation process by employing model-reduction-based approach, and also overcomes the numerical stability problems associated with the FDTD, in the presence of nonlinear terminations. In addition, the proposed algorithm provides a direct access to existing vast device libraries of SPICE in EMI analysis.
