1000 Threads found on edaboard.com: Inductance Hfss
Can anyone please help me for finding out the inductance between two parallel cylindrical Through Silicon Vias used for 3-D Integration using hfss?
The condition is that the flow of current through the TSV is in opposit direction and the dielectric separating them is Silicon substrate.

1. You need the airbox, otherwise the pattern of fields around the inductor will be incorrect, and so will the results.
2/3. I don't like your whole probe/coax method. The probe and coax have inductance (and capacitance) of their own which gets mixed into the hfss results (S+Z parameters). So of course the results are wrong. BTW, there is no nee

for integrated circuit,a planar spiral inductor on silicon is too small for hfss. tendness towards surface in high freq may cause much different.
So U can get a approache inductance value, but cannot get a sure Q.
those just disturb me, so I must process a serial planar spiral inductors to make sure.

Assume a parallel LC circuit (L is the spiral inductance, C is the parasitic capacitance).
As nearing the resonant frequency the effective reactive impedance increases (at resonance it becomes infinity).
This increased reactive impedance can be interpreted most simply as an increasing inductance (higher inductive impedance) .

I would recommend you use the pin width. That way your model will contain the correct current profile as it approaches the device pin. Otherwise, you will lose the proper modeling of the extra inductance as the current flows from the edges of the microstrip, around the facing edges of the microstrip line (at the substrate gap) and mates with the
