AbstractA method for computing the per-unit-length capacitance matrix and the inductance matrix for multiconductor transmission lines in a multi-dielectric medium is presented. The multi-dielectric medium consists of both planar and non-planar dielectric regions. The formulation is based on an integral equation method for the free charge distribution on conductor surfaces and the polarization charge distribution on the non-planar dielectric interfaces. The kernel of the integral equation is a space domain Green's function for a layered medium. The numerical solution is obtained by the method of moments.
