In this paper, the perfectly matched layer boundary condition has been successfully implemented into the 3-D envelope finite element (EVFE) techniques to truncate the space meshes. The numerical test shows that PML can provide 40dB overall absorption in the presence of four layers of absorber. A few MMIC interconnect structures were analyzed using EVFE techniques with PML boundary conditions. The results demonstrate that the proposed approach is an efficient and precise way to analyze the MMIC interconnects.
