Abstract: To meet the metal density and uniformity requirement, metal dummy fills are inserted on all metallization layers in modern CMOS technologies. These metal dummy fills can have a detrimental effect on the performance of IC components. In this paper, the impact of metal dummy fills on the equivalent circuit and the performance of on-chip spiral inductors is presented based on experimental data. A simple closed-form formula is further provided to account for the effect of metal dummy fills to update the model for inductors in the conventional environment without metal dummy fills. © 2007 IEEE.
