Ensuring the passivity of macromodels obtained from tabulated data has become a critical issue for accurate signal integrity analysis. For delayed rational function based macromodels derived in the admittance domain, the issue of passivity has recently been addressed. In this paper, passivity verification and compensation algorithms for delayed rational function based macromodels derived in the scattering domain are presented. Numerical results validating the proposed algorithms are presented.
