This paper presents an algorithm for fast transient analysis of multiconductor transmission line interconnects in the presence of incident fields. In the proposed approach: (a) The formulation of equivalent external sources due to incident fields is independent of the type of the macromodel used to represent the MTL system and can be represented analytically in the time-domain solely based on the information of per-unit-length parameters of the line and incident field parameters, (b) An efficient passive macromodel based on delay extraction and closed-form representation is used to describe the distributed nature of the MTL stamp. The time-domain macromodel is in the form of ordinary differential equations and can be easily included in SPICE like simulators for transient analysis. The proposed algorithm, while guaranteeing the stability of the simulation by employing passive macromodels, provides significant speed-up for transmission line networks, especially with large delay and low-losses.
