With the ever increasing signal speeds, signal integrity issues of high-speed VLSI designs are presenting increasingly difficult challenges for state-of-the-art modeling and simulation tools. Consequently, characterization and passive macromodeling of high-speed modules such as interconnects, vias, and packages based on tabulated data are becoming important. This paper presents a fast algorithm for passivity verification and enforcement of large order macromodels of scattering parameter based multiport subnetworks. Numerous examples tested on this algorithm demonstrate a significant speed-up compared to the existing algorithms in the literature
