An efficient clustering scheme for macromodeling of massively coupled interconnect structures is presented. The proposed method addresses the issue of dense reduced models through a novel reduction algorithm that leads to sparse block-diagonal system matrices. It also overcomes the accuracy degradation, normally associated with the existing port-reduction techniques.
