This paper describes the matrix order reduction method by the nodal analysis formulation and the application of relaxation-based simulation technique to interconnect and plane networks. First, the characteristics of the power/ground plane networks are considered. Next, the formulation of the plane network by nodal analysis (NA) method is suggested. Furthermore, application and estimation results of the relaxation-based numerical analyses are shown. Finally, it is confirmed that the relaxation-based methods improved by the suggested formulation are much more efficient than the conventional direct-based methods.
