The paper presents an analytical solution for the delay introduced by opens and shorts on RC interconnects. Starting from the set of PDEs that defines the dynamics of such lines, complete solutions are found. Compact expressions for the delay, derived from the complete solutions, show an excellent agreement when compared with simulations, for realistic values of interconnect parameters, driver resistance and an arbitrary values and place of the defect. This information is useful for testing of such interconnects.
