For integrated spiral inductor synthesis, designers and design automation tools require efficient modeling techniques during the initial design space exploration process. In this paper, we introduce an analytical frequency-dependent resistance model for integrated spiral inductors. Based on our resistance formulation, we have developed a systematic technique for creating wide-band circuit models for accurate time domain simulation. The analytical resistance model provides a fast alternative to field solver-based approaches with typical errors of less than 2.6 percent while surpassing the accuracy of several other analytical modeling techniques by an order of magnitude. Furthermore, the wide-band circuit generation technique captures the frequency-dependent resistance of the inductor with typical errors of less than 3.2 percent. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2006.
