A new inductance extraction technique of spiral inductor from measurement fixture is presented. We propose a scalable expression of parasitic inductance for interconnects, and design consideration of test structure accommodating spiral inductor. The simple expression includes mutual inductance between the interconnects with high accuracy. The formula matches a commercial field solver inductance values within 1.4%. The layout of the test structure to reduce magnetic coupling between the spiral and the interconnects allows us to extract the intrinsic inductance of spiral more accurately. The proposed technique requires neither special fixture used for measurement-based method nor skilled worker for precise extraction with the analytical technique used.
