This work presents a simulation approach to electromagnetic coupling effects between arbitrarily oriented interconnections, e.g. on PCB and on systems level. Based on a time-domain view of the scattering processes the approach is referred to as ‘Multi-Reflection’. The theory of the method has been presented previously in a separate work. The focus of this paper therefore concentrates on the results of the numerical simulations.

The frequency-domain interpretation of the method uses a circuit partitioning technique which mathematically is described in terms of a hypermatrix formulation. This in conjunction with the Multii-Reflection based on the Method of Moments enables fast and memory-efficient computation also of large circuit geometries.

Recently the method has been investigated for simulation of transient signals by using a Fast Fourier Transform.
