  • © 2003 IEEE. We improve the accuracy and speed of boundary element method (BEM) or multipole accelerated BEM for interconnect parasitic extraction. Three techniques are presented and applied to capacitance extraction: selective coefficient enhancement, variable order multipole and multigrid. Experimental results show that the techniques are effective for extracting parasitics between all pairs of conductors, or between selected pairs of conductors.
