Passive macromodeling of EM subnetworks and high-speed modules characterized by S-parameters has generated immense interest during the recent years. This paper presents a comparison of two techniques for the passivity compensation of macromodels of Sparameter based subnetworks. The formulation and implementation of the two techniques are discussed. Numerical examples are presented to validate the theory presented in this paper.
