A method is proposed to compute moments of distributed coupled RLC interconnects. Both uniform line models and non-uniform line models will be developed. Considering both self inductances and mutual inductances in multi-conductors, recursive moment computations formulae of lumped coupled RLC interconnects are extended to those of distributed coupled RLC interconnects. By using the moment computation technique in conjunction with the projection-based order reduction method, the inductive crosstalk noise waveform can be accurately and efficiently estimated. Fundamental developments of the proposed approach will be described. Simulation results demonstrate the improved accuracy of the proposed method over the traditional lumped methods.
