This report describes an acceleration technique to synthesize time-domain macromodels of interconnects using FDTD method. In FDTD calculation, the characteristic impedance of the interconnect is inserted into every terminal in order to damp quickly the transient waveforms. Additionally, an efficient technique for analyzing the macromodels is proposed. We demonstrate the efficiency of this method with examples.
