The development of lumped-element models for arbitrary microstripline discontinuities is described. An EM-based methodology is employed, consisting of initial characterization of the discontinuities using exact EM field solvers, and subsequent fitting of the results to simple equivalent circuits. The applicability of the method is illustrated by considering a microstrip slit example.
