By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 169, 87-101, 2020
Abstract
Electromagnetic-circuital-thermal multiphysics simulation is a very important topic in the field of integrated circuit (IC), microwave circuits, antennas, etc. This paper gives a comprehensive review of the state of the art of electromagnetic-circuital-thermal multiphysics simulation method. Most efforts were focused on electromagnetic-circuital co-simulation and electromagnetic-thermal co-simulation. A brief introduction of related theory like governing equations, numerical methods, and coupling mechanisms is also included.
