An automated on-chip spiral inductor parameter extraction procedure is developed in the present paper. It is realized in the Cadence PSpice and Cadence Probe environment. A procedure is proposed to introduce the measured two-port S-parameters as input data and to calculate the parameters of the spiral inductor wide-band model. The proposed algorithm shows excellent agreement with the measured data over the whole frequency range.
