This paper presents a novel inductance extraction procedure which is based on a Monte Carlo sampling technique. Partial inductances for static current distributions can be computed efficiently and with small memory requirements, thus enabling the treatment of large and complex three-dimensional geometries. The convergence behavior is discussed and examples are presented along with a comparison to the Fasthenry code [1].
