In view of the speed of today's hardware components, wirings between IC pins cannot be regarded as ``short circuit jumper+some C'' but should be treated as a piece of transmission line. The central problem in design of any equipment employing a number of IC is thus to predict the extent of gradual deterioration of waveforms as pulses propagate along a length of transmission line loaded with many lumped constant loads at distances. A simulation technique for this problem is introduced in the paper, and the technique is more practical than those previously described.
