This paper deals with uncertainty propagation applied to the analysis of crosstalk in printed circuit board microstrip traces. Complex interconnection networks generally are affected by many uncertain parameters and their point-to-point transfer functions are computationally expensive, thus making Monte-Carlo analyses rather inefficient. To overcome this situation, a metamodel is highly desirable. This paper presents a sparse and accelerated polynomial chaos approach, which proves to be well

We highlight the significant advantage of the advocated approach for the design of microstrip line networks of complex topology. In fact, we demonstrate how a small number of system simulations can help to quantify the statistics of the output variability and identify a reduced set of high-impact parameters.
