Abstract

On-chip interconnects over an orthogonal grid of grounded lines on a silicon substrate are characterized by full-wave electromagnetic simulation. It is demonstrated that the shielding structure significantly enhances the transmission characteristics of on-chip interconnects. An equivalent circuit model for the shielded interconnects is also presented.
