This paper introduces a new time-domain approach for compact macromodeling of multiport high-speed circuits with long delays, characterized by tabulated data. The algorithm is based on partitioning the data in the time-domain and subsequently, approximating each partition via delayed rational functions. This results in a compact low-order macromodel in the form of delayed differential equations, which can be efficiently analyzed in the time-domain using circuit simulators.
