Model the transmission line as a transmission line and the
load should be modeled as a lumped capacitance. You
may also want to model the package inductance and capacitance
depending on your application. Some of the load capacitance
may have series resistance due to ESD filter circuitry but
I rarely see vendors supplying this information unless it
it is factored into the IBIS model package resistance.
