This paper presents a realizable RLM C 1 reduction algorithm for extracted interconnect circuits based on two effective approaches: RL branch reduction and RC/LC node reduction. Our algorithm takes advantage of some structures existing extensively in interconnect circuits and hence has extremely fast execution time. It takes about 8 seconds to reduce a circuit of over 300,000 elements while maintaining 3% error and 75% element reduction ratio.
