In this paper, we propose an efficient table-based model for frequency-dependent on-chip inductance, and apply it to compute mutual inductance between random wires and loop inductance for cascade wires, respectively. Our inductance computation achieves around 5% error when compared to the numerical solution, and matches frequency-dependent impact very well. We also apply the inductance model to generate RLC circuit models for on-chip interconnects, and present a complexityefficient normalized
