A new CAD tool for high speed VLSI interconnect simulation is presented. Neural networks are capable of modeling the relationship between an interconnect network and its associated signal integrity parameters in an efficient yet simple manner, producing fast models ideally suited for CAD and optimization routines. The resultant models have high accuracy and low run times, and give substantial speedup over existing simulation techniques.
